Please provide an example of the /etc/hosts file which is causing problems.

Comment 5 Abhijeet Kasurde 2016-07-08 12:53:58 UTC
I am resolv.conf something like this

[ server1 ] # cat /etc/resolv.conf
# Generated by NetworkManager
search testrelm.test

Comment 6 Petr Spacek 2016-07-11 07:21:34 UTC
Okay, that is certainly invalid file. We can improve this but it is sooo small corner case that I would not give it huge priority for now.

Upstream ticket:

Comment 8 Abhijeet Kasurde 2016-09-26 08:58:27 UTC
Just a update : 

We can fix this issue by porting this change in current IPA code -


Comment 9 Petr Vobornik 2016-10-21 21:00:44 UTC
fixed in upstream python-dns, needs rebase to python-dns 1.15

Comment 11 Abhijeet Kasurde 2017-05-25 07:31:17 UTC
Verified using IPA version ::

# rpm -qa ipa-server python-dns

Steps taken for verification ::

1. Modify /etc/resolv.conf such that it contains incomplete entry
2. Try install IPA server and IPA master. Installation in both cases should succeed.

Marking BZ as verified.
