##A clone from . Add function to import users/groups.

User data is provided in a ipa-user-data file in yaml format, then will be called
in the entrypoint to create the users,groups,roles defined in the yaml file.

FreeIPA server in Docker

This repository contains the Dockerfile and associated assets for
building a FreeIPA server Docker image from the official yum repo.

Install docker 1.2+:

yum install -y docker-io    # on Fedoras
yum install -y docker    # on RHEL 7

Start the service:

systemctl start docker

To build the image, run in the root of the repository:

docker build -t freeipa-server .

Create directory which will hold the server data:

mkdir /var/lib/ipa-data

You can optionally put into this directory a file


with command line parameters to ipa-server-install command, one
parameter per line. You probably want at least


If you want to create a replica instead of master, put the GPG-encrypted
replica information file to this directory, plus file


to instruct the container to create a replica. That file should contain
command line parameters to the ipa-replica-install command, possibly at


You then run the container with

docker run --name freeipa-server-container -ti \
   -h ipa.example.test \
   -v /var/lib/ipa-data:/data:Z freeipa-server

If you do not specify the passwords in the ipa-server-install-options
file, use PASSWORD environment variable via the -e option:

docker run --name freeipa-server-container -ti \
   -h ipa.example.test -e PASSWORD=Secret123 \
   -v /var/lib/ipa-data:/data:Z freeipa-server

If the above fails with error about invalid value for flag -v
and bad format for volumes, run

chcon -t svirt_sandbox_file_t /var/lib/ipa-data

or use semanage fcontext and restorecon, and use -v option
without the :Z part.

The option --name assigns the container a name that can be used
later with docker start, docker stop and other commands.
Command ipa-server-install is invoked non-interactively the first
time the container is run.

You can pass environment variable IPA_SERVER_INSTALL_OPTS with
additional options that will be passed to ipa-server-install.

The -ti parameters are optional and are used for get a terminal
(useful for experimenting in the container).

The container can the be started and stopped:

docker stop freeipa-server-container
docker start -ai freeipa-server-container

If you want to use the FreeIPA server not just from the host
where it is running but from external machines as well, you
might want to use the -p options to make the services accessible
externally. You will then likely want to also specify the
IPA_SERVER_IP environment variable via the -e option to
define what IP address should the server put to DNS as its
address. Starting the server would then be

docker run -e IPA_SERVER_IP= -p 53:53/udp -p 53:53 \
    -p 80:80 -p 443:443 -p 389:389 -p 636:636 -p 88:88 -p 464:464 \
-p 88:88/udp -p 464:464/udp -p 123:123/udp -p 7389:7389 \
-p 9443:9443 -p 9444:9444 -p 9445:9445 ...

IPA-enrolled client in Docker

There are multiple *-client branches named after OS they are
based on. Check out the branch you prefer and in the root of the
repository, run:

docker build -t freeipa-client .

To run the client container, run it with correctly set DNS
and hostname in the IPA domain, or you can link it to the
freeipa-server container directly:

docker run --privileged --link freeipa-server-container:ipa \
    -e PASSWORD=Secret123 -ti freeipa-client

The first time this container runs, it invokes ipa-client-install
with the given admin password.
