Description Ronen Angluster 2011-08-09 16:25:48 UTC
Description of problem:
in RHEVM we implement a wrapper to install IPA with the simplest configuration possible, no CA is required, no kerberos and no DNS configuration.
the only host that can connect to the IPA instance we deploy is from within the host. yet ipa-server-install still preforms DNS checks (even with the --no-dns flag supplied) which can fail the installation. we need a method to install IPA which will be bullet proof and will not perform checks that protect functions we do not intend to use.

for example:
ipaserver.install.installutils.verify_fqdn still verify the reverse dns lookup for the ip address of the host even tho the --no-dns flag is provided.

This was already closed upstream and will be released as part of future FreeIPA release (2.1).
