2.2. Installing the FreeIPA Server Packages

Installing only the FreeIPA server requires a single package, freeipa-server. If the FreeIPA server will also manage a DNS server, then it requires two additional packages to set up the DNS.
All of these packages can be installed using the yum command:
[root@server ~]# yum install freeipa-server bind bind-dyndb-ldap
Installing the freeipa-server also installs a large number of dependencies, such as 389-ds-base for the LDAP service and krb5-server for the Kerberos service, along with FreeIPA tools.
After the packages are installed, the server instance must be created using the ipa-server-install command. The options for configuring the new server instance are described in Section 2.3, “Creating a FreeIPA Server Instance”.
