It seems that running certutil didn't succeed so I added a debugging

certutil -o: unable to open "tempcertreq" for writing (-5950, 2)
Exit 255

(The "Exit 255" is from my shell saying that certutil exited returning
255). I did a git grep tempcertreq in freeipa git tree but didn't find
anything, so I'm assuming we weren't creating it or anything. Does
anyone know what might be causing this error?


This message comes directly from certutil itself. It tries to open the file "tempcertreq" in the cwd.

Odd since you are installing this as root, right? Perhaps you are in a directory that no longer exists?

I seem to recall running into this in v1 as well and though we did a chdir(). Maybe we do that in some places and not others.
