Description

When attempting to run Smart-Proxy against a 'HA' FreeIPA setup using the 'realm' module, currently SP loads the IPA XMLRPC_URI value from '/etc/ipa/default.conf'.
However this URL will point at a single FreeIPA server, with no automatic fail-over.

Therefore if that FreeIPA server is unavailable, SP will be unable to talk to FreeIPA.

Couple of suggestions after talking with ohadlevy/stbenham on IRC:
  • Add support for using SRV records, so that SP can switch between servers.
  • Add support for running SP behind a load-balancer. SSL possibly the limiting factor on this one.
  • Add support for associating multiple SP's with a REALM resource. Foreman can then choose which SP to talk to for the given action.
