Description David Juran 2011-10-21 09:58:48 EDT
Description of problem:
If re-installing an IPA server, the SSL cert for the IPA admin UI will get the same serial number as before. Firefox will then refuse to connect to the site with the error code sec_error_reused_issuer_and_serial 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. ipa-server-install --uninstall
2. ipa-server-install
3. Connect to ipa server using firefox
Additional info:

Maybe the certificate can be in some way tied to the time-stamp? That would be an easy way of making it monotonically increasing.

This change won't make 7.4. Fixing in 7.5 depends on upstream capacity.
