Description of problem:
Attempting to run ipa-server-install on a system with both an IPv4 and an IPv6 address associated with the system's hostname throws an error stating that with more than one IP address, the --ip-address option must be provide.
From conversations on IRC, it seems that the primary reasons for this are to support adding the entry to DNS and to avoid dealing with multihomed machines, but this isn't really multi-homed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up a system with both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses (the latter can be link-local; it will still demonstrate the error)
2. Set the hostname of the system
3. Add 'myhostname' to the hosts: line in /etc/nsswitch.com
4. Attempt to run 'ipa-server-install -U --setup-dns <arguments>'
Unattended installation fails, asking for the user to specify a single IP address.
The installer should proceed to completion.
The fix here should probably also filter out link-local addresses from the list.
