I've been attempting to install the virtual machine setup from

I install on fresh Fedora 15 x86_64 host, and I am able to complete the first 
two steps.

When I run the last script, 
I get from the ipa-demo-<date>.log
CRITICAL:root:failed to configure ca instance
and later in the log:
Warning: skipping DNS resolution of host master.example.com
The IPA Master Server will be configured with
Hostname:    master.example.com
IP address:
Domain name: example.com
Configuring certificate server: Estimated time 3 minutes 30 seconds
  [1/17]: creating certificate server user
  [2/17]: creating pki-ca instance
  [3/17]: configuring certificate server instance
Unexpected error - see ipaserver-install.log for details:
 Configuration of CA failed
Server installation failed!
Domain f15-ipa-server destroyed

Domain f15-ipa-server has been undefined

I see the dhcp address changing for master.example.com each time the script is 
Is there a requirement for making the dhcp address consistent for 
and having the address in /etc/hosts so that it can reverse resolve via 

Or does the DNS resolution of ip to host have any bearing on the certificate 
creation as I suspect?
