IPA server installation with externally signed CA certificate is split into two command runs. Options provided to the first run are stored and later restored in second run. Option '--setup-dns' was not stored in the end of the first run.
Default value (false) of option '--setup-dns' was used in second run of IPA server installer. DNS server was not configured together with IPA server.
Values of all provided options are stored between installer runs.
Second run of IPA server respects values of previously provided options.
This bug is created as a clone of upstream ticket:

If I run
ipa-server-install -n example.com -r EXAMPLE.COM --external-ca
--subject="O=example AG,C=DE" --setup-dns --forwarder ...
then it asks me get signed certificates and to run ipa-server-install again.
The next step is to get /root/ipa.csr signed by your CA and re-run
If I do, then DNS is not setup. I have to add the DNS specific options again.
This is highly misleading. ipa-server-install should show *all* necessary
command line arguments to complete the second step, according to step 1.
Unfortunately the log file is gone. Did you know that ipa-server-install
overwrites its own logfiles?
This is a regression in 7.2. Second step of installation should use the options which were provided in the first step. It does not happen and therefore DNS was not installed.
It may also lead to other issues related to non-default options, e.g. bug 1292042.
Already fixed upstream.
