Hi Rob, et al -

I tried again, and am pasting all the output below. Is there something I'm 
missing?

Drop the = with -w. You're passing the password as =foobar.

Do not use a = with single dash options, only double-dash ones. To make it more 
confusing you don't have to use an equals with double-dash options either but 
you can. Ain't unix cli options great?

Right you are! Thanks for your help, Rob - this will certainly help us with 
mass deployments.

For the record, the winning combination:

ipa host-add ian-ultra24-dmz.in.hwlab --password=foobar
ipa-client-install --hostname=ian-ultra24-dmz.in.hwlab --domain=in.hwlab 
--password=foobar --realm=SBGRID.ORG --server=sbgrid-directory.in.hwlab 
--unattended

Is this documented anywhere else other than on Fedora's site? The docs I linked 
to are just plain wrong...

http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora/16/html/FreeIPA_Guide/kickstart.html

says:

/usr/sbin/ipa-client-install --domain=EXAMPLEDOMAIN --enable-dns-updates 
--mkomedir --principal=HOST/$(cat /tmp/hostname.txt) -w=secret 
--realm=EXAMPLEREALM --server=ipaserver.example.com --unattended

Best,
Ian

Ouch, sorry about the bad docs. I've filed a bug to have that corrected, https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=822252
