IDP Installation testing.


  1. For testing purposes, a machine (or VM) with 1GB of RAM and 4 GB of free disk space for binaries, data and logs should be plenty to set up and run an IPA master.
  2. It is assumed that the IDP is installed on the same server/VM as the IPA master

How to test


First, install the Ipsilon server packages:

# yum install ipsilon ipsilon-tools ipsilon-authkrb ipsilon-infosssd ipsilon-tools-ipa ipsilon-saml2 ipsilon-authfas ipsilon-authldap ipsilon-authform

Install the server to use IPA.

# ipsilon-server-install --ipa=yes --form=yes

The ipsilon server installer doesn't yet have support for the Apache SSL plugin mod_nss. It always configures for mod_ssl instead. IPA uses mod_nss, so we need to make a minor tweak to the IDP Apache configuration.

Edit /etc/httpd/conf.d/ipsilon-idp.conf





Restart Apache

# systemctl restart httpd

Verify the basics

Firefox should be launched from a machine that is enrolled to the IPA server.

Start firefox


Authenticate as admin using the IPA admin password

Expected Results

All the test steps should end with the specified results.
