How do you propose for things to work when the host is pre-created
(with --random) and the service should be pre-created, and then IP
address will only be set by the machine itself when it IPA-enrolls
with the OTP?

Does your nack go against this patch (code change), or against the
ticket https://fedorahosted.org/freeipa/ticket/3959 itself?

Frankly, I don't really understand why service-add checks for the DNS
record at all. DNS is a property of host, not service. Yes, it might
be nice to advise the user that they do not have DNS record for the
host but the current

        ipa: ERROR: Host does not have corresponding DNS A record

is just bad user experience.

Do you propose to change that ERROR to warning, for example,
relaxing the requirement for the DNS records being present?
