Description Scott Poore 2016-06-29 15:05:12 UTC
Description of problem:

In latest builds we're seeing issues with DNS resolution or entries created:

ipa         : ERROR    unable to resolve host name master.testrelm.test. to IP address, ipa-ca DNS record will be incomplete

I can see that we do not have an ipa-ca entry after install completes:

[root@master ~]# dig +short ipa-ca.testrelm.test.
[root@master ~]# ipa dnsrecord-show testrelm.test ipa-ca
ipa: ERROR: ipa-ca: DNS resource record not found

But, at least after install, I can resolve the master:

[root@master ~]# dig +short master.testrelm.test
[root@master ~]# 

In ipaserver-install.log I see some messages related I think:
2016-06-29T14:34:59Z DEBUG dnszone_show(<DNS name testrelm.test.>, rights=False, all=False, raw=False, 
2016-06-29T14:34:59Z DEBUG The DNS query name does not exist: master.testrelm.test.
2016-06-29T14:35:04Z DEBUG The DNS query name does not exist: master.testrelm.test.
2016-06-29T14:36:55Z DEBUG The DNS query name does not exist: master.testrelm.test.
2016-06-29T14:37:00Z ERROR unable to resolve host name master.testrelm.test. to IP address, ipa-ca DNS record will be incomplete

Then when we try to install IPA clients we see errors:

cannot verify if this is an IPA server

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
seems consistent so far

Steps to Reproduce:Secret123
1.  ipa-server-install --setup-dns --forwarder $DNSFORWAREDER --domain $DOMAIN --realm $REALM --hostname $NEWHOSTNAME --ip-address $IPADDRESS --admin-password $PASSWORD --ds-password $PASSWORD -U

Actual results:

error seen during install and unable to resolve ipa-ca after install leading to client install issues

Expected results:
no errors.  ipa-ca created during ipa-server-install as normal.

Setup complete

Next steps:
	1. You must make sure these network ports are open:
		TCP Ports:
		  * 80, 443: HTTP/HTTPS
		  * 389, 636: LDAP/LDAPS
		  * 88, 464: kerberos
		  * 53: bind
		UDP Ports:
		  * 88, 464: kerberos
		  * 53: bind
		  * 123: ntp

	2. You can now obtain a kerberos ticket using the command: 'kinit admin'
	   This ticket will allow you to use the IPA tools (e.g., ipa user-add)
	   and the web user interface.

Be sure to back up the CA certificates stored in /root/cacert.p12
These files are required to create replicas. The password for these
files is the Directory Manager password
