Ya, I thought about that initially. It cannot be done for the problem we are trying to solve. ipaserver/install/installutils.py ^ This only comes along via the installation of the server package. > We'd need to move this to ipapython to be usable by the client but it would > do a lot more checking and no code duplication. We are trying to make sure that ipa-client-install on Client systems are capable of doing the fwd/reverse and they don't receive any of the server rpms. That is why this patch add's this functionality to ipapython. _______________________________________________ Freeipa-devel mailing list Freeipafirstname.lastname@example.org https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/freeipa-devel
