Chapter 101. Demoting or promoting hidden replicas

After a replica has been installed, you can configure whether the replica is hidden or visible.

For details about hidden replicas, see The hidden replica mode.

If the replica is a CA renewal server, move the service to another replica before making this replica hidden. For details, see Changing and resetting IdM CA renewal server.


The hidden replica feature, introduced in RHEL 8.1 as a Technology Preview, is fully supported starting with RHEL 8.2.


  • To hide the replica, enter:

    # ipa server-state --state=hidden

    Alternatively, you can make the replica visible with the following command:

    # ipa server-state --state=enabled
