I keep hitting a strange issue: when I create a dnsrecord manually and

corresponding DNS A/AAAA record.

ofayans@f22master:~]$ ipa dnsrecord-add
Record name: fortest
Zone name: pesen.net.
Please choose a type of DNS resource record to be added
The most common types for this type of zone are: A, AAAA

DNS resource record type: A
A IP Address:
   Record name: fortest
   A record:
ofayans@f22master:~]$ ipa host-add
Host name: fortest.pesen.net
ipa: ERROR: Host does not have corresponding DNS A/AAAA record
ofayans@f22master:~]$ ping fortest
PING fortest.pesen.net ( 56(84) bytes of data.

The check uses DNS resolution to get the info. Does it work well?
It works, I added an output of ping command to show that

Other option is to add host with --ip-address option so you can skip the
dnsrecord-add call.

I know, but there must be a way to fix the host if an admin forgot to add this option. So, ideally, I should be able to create a host, then add a dnsrecord, then add a service. Now, obviously it's not the case:

root@f22master:/home/ofayans]$ ping trololo.pesen.net
PING trololo.pesen.net ( 56(84) bytes of data.
--- trololo.pesen.net ping statistics ---
1 packets transmitted, 0 received, 100% packet loss, time 0ms

root@f22master:/home/ofayans]$ ipa service-add someservice/trololo.pesen.net
ipa: ERROR: Host does not have corresponding DNS A/AAAA record
root@f22master:/home/ofayans]$ ipa dnsrecord-show
Record name: trololo
Zone name: pesen.net.
  Record name: trololo
  A record:

When I then use --force to create the host anyway and then try to add a
service to this host, I get the same error:

ofayans@f22master:~]$ ipa service-add
Principal: fortest/fortest.pesen.net
ipa: ERROR: The host 'fortest.pesen.net' does not exist to add a service

This error tells that the host entry does not exist.
