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 dnsmasq?

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

Consistent name resolution is a requirement for IPA.
Ondrej, can you please take a closer look and see if this is something
with the demo scripts or IPA itself?
I don't see a problem in scripts. When the virtual machines are created by ipa-demo, they acquire addresses from dhcp, then - before installation of freeipa - they're configured to use static addresses(the currently assigned ip address is chosen) and also the records are added into /etc/hosts.

I wasn't able to reproduce the problem on clean f15 x64, the installation was successful, but few errors like this one appeared:
