Releases/4.9.8

Release date Released 2021-11-26

The FreeIPA team would like to announce FreeIPA 4.9.8 release!

It can be downloaded from http://www.freeipa.org/page/Downloads. Builds for Fedora distributions will be available from the official repository soon.

Highlights in 4.9.8

  • 8397: Cannot remove First master server with KRA after the server hard disk failed ( destructed)
The KRA role search was too narrow resulting in false positives when trying to delete a server with a KRA, resulting in an error that the last KRA was being removed when this was not the case.

  • 8492: RFE: Include the server schema version in communication with the client
IPA clients store a copy of the server command schema, with a TTL of 1 hour by default. During plugin development command options, labels, etc may change and because some values are cached, new values will not display until the cache expires. This change adds a new configuration option, schema_ttl, so that a user can control how long the data is cached. A setting of 0 disables the cache. Tuning this is not recommended on production servers.

  • 8962: Info about searchrecordslimit set search limit to 10,000 after upgrade
Set the server-side search size limit to 10,000 entries. By default the client side will still be 100. Consider carefully when increasing the client side value as it adds additional load on the server to retrieve more entries.

  • 8968: Add URI records for KDC
FreeIPA DNS integration now provides URI records for a dynamic discovery of Kerberos KDCs. This allows automatic discover and use of MS-KKDCP proxies. URI records are also Kubernetes-friendly as Kubernetes does not support SRV records with the same name and different protocols.

  • 8974: RHEL 8.5 IPA Replica setup fails against a RHEL 7.9 IPA server
When creating a new replica against an older existing server that lacks the sanToCNDefaultImpl capability, the ACME certificate profile cannot be added. Running ipa-server-upgrade manually after ipa-replica-install has completed will correctly add in the missing profile.

  • 8980: Nightly test failure in pki-fedora/test_integration/test_backup_and_restore
Make Dogtag return XML for ipa cert-find

  • 8986: ipa cert-request replaces user certificate instead of adding
By default IPA caches LDAP entries within a given request. Entries with a userCertificate value are not cached because the attribute may be represented with or without a ;binary tag and this confuses the cache. This will be revisted in the future but for now we are favoring correctness over speed.

  • 8995: Integrate SID configuration into base IPA installers
New installations of IPA now configure the server to generate SIDs by default. Previously, this setup was executed as part of the ipa-adtrust-install command.

  • 9031: Harden FreeIPA KDC processing of PAC buffers
FreeIPA now implements PAC structure hardening as coordinated with Samba Team and Microsoft in CVE-2020-25719 and CVE-2021-42287 correspondingly.

  • 9038: Concerns regarding 'ipa pwpolicy-mod --minlife 24 --maxlife 1'
ipa pwpolicy-mod --minlife $min --maxlife $max accepts $max >= $min, yet the error message says: "Maximum password life must be greater than minimum." Change the error message so that it conveys the actual logic.

During plugin development command options, labels, etc may change and because some values are cached, new values will not display until the cache expires.

Known Issues

  • 8700: ipa-server-install --auto-reverse does not create reverse DNS zone in Fedora 33
Previously, systemd-resolved presented reverse record for host's IP address which made ipa-server-install skip creation of reverse zone. The issue was fixed in systemd on Fedora 35 and is not a problem anymore.

  • 9026: Missing bind-pkcs11-utils causing failures in OpenDNSSec
OpenDNSSec integration: depend on bind-dnssec-utils on all Fedora releases and RHEL == 9+. Switch to "/usr/sbin/dnssec-keyfromlabel -E pkcs11" instead of "/usr/sbin/dnssec-keyfromlabel-pkcs11" there too.
