ok, so I added on the CRL generator (kdc01) this to CS.cfg :


and rebooted

and on the kdc02 (the second replica, not holding the CRL generator) I
removed the comment on the rewrite rule, restarted apache2 and now
when getting /ipa/crl/MasterCRL.bin clients get redirected to

And this crl is up to date

$ openssl crl -inform DER -in Downloads/MasterCRL.crl -noout  -lastupdate
lastUpdate=Oct 13 19:00:00 2014 GMT

$ openssl crl -inform DER -in Downloads/MasterCRL.crl -noout  -nextupdate
nextUpdate=Oct 13 23:00:00 2014 GMT

But if I get it from the crl generator using /ipa/crl/MasterCRL.bin I
still get the old crl dated june 28th last year.

Should I modify ipa-pki-proxy.conf as well on the CRL generator host
to point to the /ca/ee/ca/getCRL?op=getCRL&crlIssuingPoint=MasterCRL
as well?
