Description Stephen Gallagher 2014-09-18 12:03:11 UTC
Description of problem:
The default installation of Fedora Server is meant to be possible to join an Active Directory domain. This requires the presence of the 'adcli' command on the system.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Server 21 Alpha RC1

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora Server with all of the defaults.

Actual results:
adcli is not installed

Expected results:
adcli is installed

Additional info:
There is also BZ #1143988 where the automatic installation of this package is not working properly, so fixing this in comps will work around that issue as well.

Comment 1 Stephen Gallagher 2014-09-18 12:08:21 UTC
Fixed in comps by adding 'adcli' to the @domain-client group.


Comment 2 Fedora Blocker Bugs Application 2014-09-18 12:14:37 UTC
Proposed as a Blocker for 21-alpha by Fedora user sgallagh using the blocker tracking app because:

 "It must be possible to join the system to a FreeIPA or Active Directory domain at install time and post-install, and the system must respect the identity, authentication and access control configuration provided by the domain."

Note 1: FreeIPA joins are working properly. It may be acceptable to accept that at least one of them works in Alpha and not block on this.

Note 2: A workaround exists for post-installation enrollment (manual install of the 'adcli' tool post-installation). No workaround exists for kickstart (violating the "at install time" statement) since the package is not currently included in the server install set.

Note 3: I've already pushed the fix to comps, so if an RC2 occurs, this is already set to be included.

Discussed in 2014-09-18 Go/No-Go meeting. Voted as a RejectedBlocker. While this bug seems to be a blocker, there are workarounds which make it possible to join AD domains. The fix will land in Beta TCs. The workarounds will be documented on Common Bugs.
