Chapter 80. Demoting or promoting hidden replicas

After a replica has been installed, you can change 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. For details, see Changing and resetting IdM CA renewal server.


The hidden replica feature is available in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.1 and later as a Technology Preview and, therefore, not supported.


  • 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
