Description Dennis Gilmore 2024-02-19 18:50:10 UTC
When setting up a new install, joining my ipa domain was failing with a message saying that joining failed. Without anything else to go by, I had no way to get into the system. I ended up completing the setup without the domain, and on investigation, it was because the hostname was set to just the short hostname and not the FQDN. gnome-initial-setup should indicate that an FQDN is needed and verify it is more than a short hostname. Additionally, it should provide some feedback from the underlying system as to what is going on so the user can correct things.

Reproducible: Always

I am pretty sure this should be fixed over https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/realmd/realmd/-/merge_requests/39, but that fix is not part of Fedora 40 yet.

Discussed in ticket: https://pagure.io/fedora-qa/blocker-review/issue/1468

The decision to classify this bug as an RejectedBlocker and AcceptedFreezeException was made:

"This doesn't violate Fedora release criteria, but would obviously be a nice thing to have fixed and improved, so rejecting as a blocker and accepting as a freeze exception."
