[RFE] Use automember for hosts after the host is added
|Reported by:||dpal||Owned by:||akrivoka|
|Priority:||major||Milestone:||FreeIPA 4.0 - 2013/12|
|Affects Documentation:||no||Patch link:||1|
|Red Hat Bugzilla:||1108226||Patch review by:|
|External tracker:||Design link:||http://www.freeipa.org/page/V4/Automember_rebuild_membership|
|Test coverage:||Test by:|
|Test case:||Needs UI design:||Not needed|
|Release Notes:||Add automember-rebuild command allowing to apply all automember rules to existing objects (users, hosts). The command is synchronous, it returns when the backend LDAP operation finishes (unless --no-wait option is passed).|
It became apparent that there are some cases when the purpose thus and proper system placing into the host groups is not known in advance. Consider the following scenario:
- There is an existing system not integrated with IPA, Spacewalk or other management software but running some application.
- The system should be inspected, classified and the right configuration and policy should be applied.
- The first step is to enrol it into IPA so that management software can SSH into the system and collect facts and stats. At this point the host needs to be created in IPA but the type of the host is yet to be determined.
- Once the system is enrolled the management software would connect, collect facts and determine the class or type of the system.
- The management software then should be able to issue command that would trigger autoplacement plugin for already existing host.
