ipa-server-install --setup-bind lets you use an hostname which does not match the IP address given
Reported by: shillman Assigned to: davido
Priority: minor Milestone: release-1
Component: ipa-server Version: 1.0
Technically, the hostname gave matches nowhere, to my knowledge, but it seems like it'd be really, really bad to let someone tell the IPA server be a bind server if it cannot match the hostnmae with its IP address.
It's also a bit odd that the hosts file gets edited while one is still in the middle of the script, but seems less dramatically bad.

If one is setting up
bind via --setup-bind, why does ipa-server-install even do a check on the hostname one specifies in the first place? I mean, I guess it can't hurt to do, but that is definitely why I got confused.
Ahhh - now that is a good point. And just one of the things on the list of why setup-bind is half-baked. Can you add this to the bug so we don't forget. I don't think it's a show stopper, but always prompting for hostname and not verifying seems like the right thing when --setup-bind is set.
[unclosing so that this doesn't get lost, but I think the bug as is is invalid]
