In the meantime, I've changed
/usr/lib/python2.x/site-packages/ipaserver/install/cainstance.py to
force a CN and obtained a successful install. After the install,
trying to create a cert failed so I also patched
/usr/lib/python2.x/site-packages/ipalib/x509.py to allow for the
different CN. Is there anywhere else I could get into trouble later on
that might also need to be changed?
