Doc Type: If docs needed, set a value
Doc Text:
When upgrading to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.4, the IdM upgrade script failed because it did not accept the HTTPD and LDAP server certificates nicknames different from 'Server-Cert'. Consequently, the upgrade script did not complete successfully, and IdM services were not restarted. The bug has been fixed, and the upgrade now succeeds with the server certificates nicknames different from 'Server-Cert'.

Comment 10 Nikhil Dehadrai 2017-09-29 12:23:18 UTC
IPA-server-version: ipa-server-4.5.0-21.el7_4.2.2.x86_64

Verified the bug with following observations:

In my case upgrade from RHEL 7.3.z > RHEL 7.4

1) Setup self-signed IPA at RHEL 7.3.z
2) makepki.sh tool from freeipa-tools to generate an external CA and ldap/http certificates.
3) # ipa-cacert-manage install -t CT,C,C ca1.crt
4) # cd ca1
5) # ipa-server-certinstall -d -w --pin Secret123 --cert-name myextcertforbug --dirman-password Secret123 server.crt server.key
6) # ipactl restart
7) # ipactl status
8) # Use the repo to upgrade RHEL IPA server to
9) # yum -y update 'ipa*' sssd
10) # tail -1 /var/log/ipaupgrade.log 
11) # ipactl restart
12) # ipactl status
13) # kinit admin
14) Check UI login


A) RHEL 7.3.z > RHEL 7.4 update1 : FAILED
B) RHEL 7.3.z > RHEL 7.4 update2 : SUCCESS

Thus on the basis of above observations and Comment#9, marking the status of bug to "VERIFIED"
