Random password not displayed when reverse zone for the client doesn't exist.

Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. [root@nightcrawler ~]# ipa host-add --random qe-blade-10.idm.lab.bos.redhat.com --ip-address=10.16.76.41
ipa: ERROR: The host was added but the DNS update failed with: DNS reverse zone for IP address 10.16.76.41 not found
Actual results: random password is not displayed.
Expected results: Should display random passowrd.
We will be able to fix this issue when IPA has means for displaying non-critical errors as warnings (so they won't cover the useful output) - Bug 820013. I will create an upstream ticket for this issue that will depend on this bug.
Thank you taking your time and submitting this request for Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Unfortunately, this bug was not given a priority and was deferred both in the upstream project and in Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Given that we are unable to fulfill this request in following Red Hat Enterprise Linux releases, I am closing the Bugzilla as WONTFIX. To request that Red Hat re-considers the decision, please re-open the Bugzilla via appropriate support channels and provide additional business and/or technical details about its importance to you.
Note that you can still track this request or even contribute patches in the referred upstream Trac ticket.
