Chapter 4. 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


  • 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
