Description Petr Vobornik 2017-03-28 11:58:52 UTC
Cloned from upstream: https://pagure.io/freeipa/issue/6824

Dogtag is unable to create a strong-enough PIN in FIPS (https://pagure.io/dogtagpki/issue/2556 - they only use some numbers) to be used to create an NSS database.
Add a workaround setting `pki_pin` to a random value we can generate by ipautil.ipa_generate_password().

Comment 5 Abhijeet Kasurde 2017-05-29 11:34:52 UTC
Verified using IPA version :: 
# rpm -qa ipa-server

[root@ipaserver01 ~]# grep pki_pin /var/log/ipaserver-install.log && echo $?
pki_pin = XXXXXXXX

Marking BZ as verified. Also, ran Sanity and FIPS related testcases to verify PKI_PIN.
