Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 450745
Server's hostname must be the same as the one entered to ipa-server-install
Last modified: 2016-07-26 19:47:05 EDT
Description of problem:
It should be documented somewhere that the hostname entered to the
ipa-server-install script must be the same as the one setuped on the machine,
otherwise dirsrv can't use it's own keytab, which results in commands such as
ipa-finduser to fail.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Added to installation guide "Configuring the IPA Server" (currently section 3.2)
The hostname that you enter into the ipa-server-install script must be the same as that returned by the hostname command, otherwise the Directory Server cannot use its own keytab. This can cause some ipa-* commands to fail.
Fix is verified in comment #2 closing bug :)
