I would think the version you have would work fine.

What it is doing is testing to be sure that nss is working as expected. It can take some time for sssd to come up, connect to the IPA server, etc, so we loop and try several times (IIRC 5 in your version) to look up a known remote user (admin).

If it never does successfully get the admin user you should get an error that nss_ldap can't be configured (yeah, I know, we're using sssd. We fixed this). If you aren't getting this message and the client otherwise seems to be installing ok then things are fine.

Hi,


I was getting a lot of errors with the default ipa-client for Centos 6.0, so 
I've upgraded Centos
6 to use the RHEL6.2 RPMS for IPA (now version 2.1.1). I get a lot further, but 
seems to stall
right at the end of the ipa-client-install command.

Current Spec;
Server:
RHEL 6.2 Beta
ipa-admintools-2.1.1-4.el6.x86_64 ipa-client-2.1.1-4.el6.x86_64 
ipa-pki-ca-theme-9.0.3-7.el6.noarch
ipa-pki-common-theme-9.0.3-7.el6.noarch ipa-python-2.1.1-4.el6.x86_64 
ipa-server-2.1.1-4.el6.x86_64
  ipa-server-selinux-2.1.1-4.el6.x86_64

Client:
Centos 6.0 x64
ipa-client-2.1.1-4.el6.x86_64


Just an odd error during the "ipa-client-install" command, the installer seems 
to pause on
kerberos; [root@server-centos-6 ~]# ipa-client-install
Discovery was successful!
Hostname: server-centos-6.example.com
Realm: example.com
DNS Domain: example.com
IPA Server: server-389.example.com
BaseDN: dc=example,dc=com



Continue to configure the system with these values? [no]: yes
User authorized to enroll computers: admin
Password for ad...@example.com:


Enrolled in IPA realm example.com
Created /etc/ipa/default.conf
Configured /etc/sssd/sssd.conf
Configured /etc/krb5.conf for IPA realm example.com
SSSD enabled
Kerberos 5 enabled



When run in debug mode it shows this;
Kerberos 5 enabled

root        : DEBUG

stdout= root
   :

Advice anyone?



I found CentOS to be too far behind, so I started using Scientific Linux 6.1 
with latest packages
from RHEL 6.2 beta for clients instead.

I found the IPA server was easiest to test using Fedora 15.

For production, wait for RHEL 6.2. It's not far away now. :)

Siggi
