First glance on the packages built from today's tree reveal the

Having PTR sync enabled in global DNS configuration and installing

create a PTR record for the client machine. As a result,
ipa-repolica-install throws the following error:

Please check your DNS setup. (Note that this check queries IPA DNS
directly and ignores /etc/hosts.)

I work around this by passing in --no-host-dns for now

When corresponding PTR record is created manually, ipa-replica-install
still fails:

Your system may be partly configured.
Run /usr/sbin/ipa-server-install --uninstall to clean up.

The same error was catched by Jan Pazdziora (current discussion in #ipa

I pushed a rebase patchset on top of current master that includes a small patch that should deal with the kra detection bug properly.

This work requires the custodia project to securely transfer keys

This work is not 100% complete, it still misses the ability to install
kra instances and the ability to install a CA (via ipa-ca-install) with
externally signed certs.

However it is massive enough that warrants review and pushing, the resat
of the changes can be applied later as this work should not disrupt the
classic install methods.

In order to build my previous patches (530-533) are needed as well as a
number of updated components.

I used the following coprs for testing:
abbra/sssd-kkdcproxy (for sssd 1.13.1)
lkrispen/389-ds-current (for 389 >
vakwetu/dogtag_10.2.7_test_builds (for dogtag 10.2.7)
mkosek/freeipa-4.2-fedora-22 (misc)
fedora/updates-testing (python-gssapi 1.1.2)

Ludwig's copr is necessary to have a functional DNA plugin in replicas,
eventually his patches should be committed in 389-ds-base when
it will be released.

We are aware of a dogtag bug https://fedorahosted.org/pki/ticket/1580

The domain must be raised to level 1 in order to use replica promotion.

In order to promote a replica the server must be first joined as a
regular client to the domain.

This is the flow I usually use for testing:

# ipa-client-install
# kinit admin
# ipa-replica-install --promote --setup-ca
