Global DNS configuration in LDAP server is empty
You can use 'dnsconfig-mod' command to set global DNS options that
would override settings in local named.conf files

Restarting the web server
Setup complete

Next steps:
	1. You must make sure these network ports are open:
		TCP Ports:
		  * 80, 443: HTTP/HTTPS
		  * 389, 636: LDAP/LDAPS
		  * 88, 464: kerberos
		  * 53: bind
		UDP Ports:
		  * 88, 464: kerberos
		  * 53: bind
		  * 123: ntp

	2. You can now obtain a kerberos ticket using the command: 'kinit admin'
	   This ticket will allow you to use the IPA tools (e.g., ipa user-add)
	   and the web user interface.

Be sure to back up the CA certificate stored in /root/cacert.p12
This file is required to create replicas. The password for this
file is the Directory Manager password

Comment 3 Martin Kosek 2013-06-26 06:59:16 UTC
Hello Dean, thanks for the report. Can you please clarify what is the actual problem? I see that IPA server was installed, I see no errors. Is something not working as expected?

If I check my F19 testing VM, mine /var/log/ipaserver-install.log is just as massive as yours:

# ll /var/log/ipaserver-install.log
-rw-------. 1 root root 43506062 Jun 25 18:02 /var/log/ipaserver-install.log

With Fedora 18, the log was not much smaller (about 32M).

Comment 4 Dean Hunter 2013-06-26 18:56:15 UTC
I am sorry, I guess I panicked.  My attempt to examine the log file failed because it was so large.  I figured it must be full of errors.  It did not occur to me to compare sizes with previous installs.

Are there any problems caused by the five or six instances of:

  SELinux is preventing /usr/sbin/ns-slapd from 'read' accesses on the file unix

in the audit log during ipa-server-install?

Comment 5 Martin Kosek 2013-06-27 09:51:39 UTC
Given that the installation succeeded, the AVC seems to not affect FreeIPA function.

Anyway, this issue should be fixed with selinux-policy-3.12.1-57.fc19 mentioned in Bug 976159. I tested it today with enforced SELinux and installation went fine, no related AVCs.

I am therefore planning to close this one as a dup to Bug 976159, making is aware of it!

Comment 6 Martin Kosek 2013-06-28 06:05:31 UTC
Closing the bug.(In reply to Martin Kosek from comment #5)

I meant "thanks for making us aware of it". Anyway, closing this bug.
