Hello Marco,

please check the settings of the zone you are trying to add clients to.
GSS-TSIG updates are not enabled by default for new zones, it may be
your case.

This is an entry for my zone 'example.com' where dynamic updates are

# ipa dnszone-show example.com --all
  dn: idnsname=example.com,cn=dns,dc=idm,dc=lab,dc=bos,dc=redhat,dc=com
  Zone name: example.com
  Authoritative nameserver: ns.example.com.
  Administrator e-mail address: hostmaster.example.com.
  SOA serial: 2012200201
  SOA refresh: 3600
  SOA retry: 900
  SOA expire: 1209600
  SOA minimum: 3600

I have marked the important attributes with ">". I would also make sure
that the zone is properly loaded in bind-dyndb-ldap plugin (you can for
example try to retrieve its SOA record with dig).
