I've been testing our potential new IPA server before roll out and while
setting up a replica with ipa-server-2.1.3-9 I encountered the following
issues during installation

[root@ipa2 ~]# ipa-replica-install --setup-dns --no-forwarders --no-ntp

error: [Errno 97] Address family not supported by protocol

The same error runs across all threads. Turning on debug I can see that it
happens when this command is passed to the server
ipa-replica-conncheck --master ipa1.test.net --auto-master-check --realm
TEST.NET --principal admin --hostname ipa2.test.net

I got round that by running --skip-conncheck during the replica-install but
was suprised I've heard no-one else has mentioned the issue is there anyway
I can get some lower level debug info to find out the root cause of the
issue? The other thing I noticed is when hosts enroll no timestamp appears
in the "Enrolled?" column on the webui, it's not a major problem but my
guys quite liked using it as a visual aid to work though the servers they
had configured. I've looked at the 2.1.4 change log and nothing was
mentioned regarding fixes for either issue.
