Ade Lee from the dogtag team looked at our installer and found that we
restarted the pki-cad process too many times. Re-arranging some code
allows us to restart it just once. The new config time for dogtag is 3
1/2 minutes, down from about 5 1/2.

Ade is working on improvements in pki-silent as well which can
bring the
overall install time to 90 seconds. If we can get a change in SELinux
policy we're looking at 60 seconds.

This patch just contains the reworked installer part. Once an updated
dogtag is released we can update the spec file to pull it in.


This worked fine for standard dogtag installation + CA on a replica,
it failed with external CA:

Works for me.

It's just a guess, but didn't you happen to swap --external_cert_file
and --external_ca_file?


That's a good bet. I managed to find CRTs used in my installation and
displayed their contents and they were indeed wrong. So the problem was
only my side.

ACK for Rob's patch then.


It would be nice to add some sanity checks (verify that
--external_cert_file's subject name is correct and that its issuer name
matches --external_ca_file's subject name) to prevent this kind of
problem in the future.
