  * Configure the Network Time Daemon (ntpd)
  * Create and configure an instance of Directory Server
  * Create and configure a Kerberos Key Distribution Center (KDC)
  * Configure Apache (httpd)

Existing BIND configuration detected, overwrite? [no]: yes
Enter the fully qualified domain name of the computer
on which you're setting up server software. Using the form

The domain name has been calculated based on the host name.

Please confirm the domain name []:

As discussed with the reporter, this is not a bug. There was an issue with DNS configuration where reverse DNS lookups returned an invalid domain.
