I can see you are trying to install FreeIPA on an OpenVZ VM. The
problem is the venet interfaces you are using which don't use a routed
network configuration. I have successfully installed it, but using
veth interfaces instead. FreeIPA will then be able to correctly
determine the IP address and install without issue.
