Reported by: kmacmill Assigned to: kmacmill (accepted)
Priority: major Milestone: release-1
Component: ipa-server Version:
Description of problem: If the fqdn is not the first name specified in /etc/hosts for the server you are installing on, several tools will break. The installer needs to detect this misconfiguration and warn the admin. the entry in /etc/hosts needs to be of the following format: <machine ip> <machine fqdn> <machine name>
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: I did a install with the following command: /usr/sbin/ipa-server-install -U --hostname=ipaqavm.dsqa.sjc2.redhat.com -r DSQA.SJC2.REDHAT.COM -p Secret123 -P Secret123 -a Secret123 --setup-bind -u admin -d My /etc/hosts looked like this: 127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost 10.14.0.110 ipaqavm ipaqavm.dsqa.sjc2.redhat.com
Actual results: The installer completed without any errors
Expected results: The installer to throw a error, and suggest a correct host entry.
