How to improve failover mechanism on IPA client while adding users in IPA domain

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • Experiencing delay while adding users in IPA via CLI on ipa-client (when IPA master is down and replica is UP)

  • When IPA master is down, request goes to replica and delay is observed:

[root@ipa-client]# time ipa -v user-add testuser --first=test --last=user
ipa: INFO: trying
ipa: INFO: Connection to failed with NSPRError() argument 1 must be string or None, not int
ipa: INFO: trying
ipa: INFO: Forwarding 'user_add' to server u''
Added user "testuser"

real    1m31.512s     <---------- Delay
user    0m0.807s
sys     0m0.126s
