Description David Kupka 2015-11-10 14:19:14 UTC
Description of problem:
To run ipa-client-install --request-cert successfully in anaconda chroot workaround described in bug 1134497 must be used.

To remove the need for workaround:
a) anaconda installer must not bind-mount the DBus system bus socket into chroot (bug 1271551)
b) ipa needs logic to detect this situation and behave according.
c) DBus daemon needs to move socket outside the bind-mounted file system.

As described in bug 1271551, comment 7  a) is not easy to do in anaconda.
Approach b) is nothing else than hiding the workaround from user inside ipa-installer.

Comment 2 Jan Cholasta 2015-11-11 07:36:01 UTC
I am strongly opposed to the idea of working around the *deliberately* broken environment of Anaconda chroot, in ipa-client-install, or anywhere else.
