Fedora Server Roles

Anaconda Support for Server Roles

Framework for Server Role Deployment

Domain Controller Server Role

Fedora Server can deploy a domain controller powered by FreeIPA. The role greatly simplifies configuration of a primary or replica controller.

When combined with SSSD, complex tasks such as singe-signon and authenticated access to network resources is easily accomplished, and managed using a simple interface provided by Cockpit.

Cockpit Management Console

The Cockpit Management Console (the cockpit package) is now available by default in Fedora Server. This tool provides a powerful, easy to use, web-based graphical interface for managing multiple Linux servers. Features include:

  • systemd service management
  • Journal log viewer
  • Storage configuration including LVM
  • Docker container management
  • Basic network configuration
  • Adding and removing local users

See the Cockpit Project website and the Cockpit Management Console wiki page for additional information.
