When you are adding a user, you have the possibility to change a
username which we provide default to.

In CLI its pretty easy:

# ipa user-add --first=Foo --last=Bar
User login [fbar]: barfoo
Added user "barfoo"
  User login: barfoo
  First name: Foo
  Last name: Bar
  Full name: Foo Bar
  Display name: Foo Bar
  Initials: FB
  Home directory: /home/barfoo
  GECOS field: Foo Bar
  Login shell: /bin/sh
  Kerberos principal: bar...@idm.lab.bos.redhat.com
  UID: 96000014
  GID: 96000001
  Keytab: False
  Password: False

In current WebUI version you can change the default user name by
clicking on the username field and changing the value.

Options with multiple values should be entered the following way:

# ipa-dns-install --forwarder= --forwarder=

The log file for this installation can be found
in /var/log/ipaserver-install.log
This program will setup DNS for the FreeIPA Server.

This includes:
  * Configure DNS (bind)

To accept the default shown in brackets, press the Enter key.

Existing BIND configuration detected, overwrite? [no]: y

Do you want to configure the reverse zone? [yes]: 
Please specify the reverse zone name [78.16.10.in-addr.arpa.]: 
Using reverse zone 78.16.10.in-addr.arpa.

The following operations may take some minutes to complete.
Please wait until the prompt is returned.

Configuring named:
  [1/9]: adding DNS container
  [2/9]: setting up our zone
  [3/9]: setting up reverse zone
  [4/9]: setting up our own record

Setup complete

        You must make sure these network ports are open:
                TCP Ports:
                  * 53: bind
                UDP Ports:
                  * 53: bind

Both forwarders should be set:

# grep -A 4 forwarders /etc/named.conf 
        forwarders {
