Description ¶

Or at least not refer to internal RH sites.

If you attempt to access the site without having a valid Kerberos ticket, a page comes up talking about an idm wiki, calling the helpdesk, etc (forget the exact wording, I'm not at home where I've got a browser that can access my FreeIPA server). This is obviously a stale message, but where does it come from? It should be configurable to allow the admin to put something to the effect of 'You've tried to access Company XYZ's FreeIPA server, however, you do not have a Kerberos ticket. Obtain one via kinit, or if you are having difficulties, contact the helpdesk at xxx-xxx-xxxx"

Reopening - need to mark this as a config file and possibly move to /etc:

            It is installed into /usr/share/ipa/html so can be customized as desired by end-users.

        If we expect editing we should move this to /etc/ipa and mark it as config in the rpm, right?

    If we move the file we'd need to change the httpd ipa.conf as well. I think we can still mark it as config in the rpm and leave it where it is.

Comment 2 Rob Crittenden 2008-01-30 14:55:59 UTC
Committed a slightly modified version as changeset 609.

Per Simo's review I put the files into /etc/ipa/html instead. He isn't too keen
on storing html files in /etc.

Comment 3 Rob Crittenden 2008-01-30 14:56:35 UTC
To test this you'll need to do a 'make dist' or 'make local-dist' in the freeipa
source tree and verify in the generated ipa-server RPM that the files are
located properly.
