With newly created AD machines in Brno lab, existing trust tests fail on

will check the message if it says that the forward zone is already

Current approach expects that every error of ipa dnsforward-add here
will mean that the zone exists. So it might hide other issues - not very

On the other hand it is not very robust to parse error message.

Question for general audience: What do you think if IPA client's exit
status would be the IPA error code instead of "1" for every error. E.g.
in DuplicateEntry case it's 4002.

Btw, this is not a NACK.

Well AFAIK the exit status on POSIX systems is encoded into a single byte so you cannot have the return value greater that 255. We would have to devise some mapping between our XMLRPC status codes and subprocess return codes.

Some of our exceptions have defined return values outside plain '1', e.g. NotFound has return value of 2. It would be possible to extend this concept on other common errors.
