Running IPA server on AWS

Posted on


We have been using IPA in the office and we are planning to transition to AWS. This looked like a straight forward change.

I have setup an IPA replica on AWS and I am having a miserable time getting it to work reliably. The problem is, to get IPA to work, I had to replace route 53 IP address with the IPA IP address.

Initially, the resolving was very slow, but was still working. Then on Thursday last week, it stopped working completely. I can verify the the DNS port is still reachable using nmap, but when I attempt to use dig, it don't reach the IPA.

Any advice would be really appreciated.
