Hello Bret,

can you try reloading the httpd server where your IPA server is being run? This issue can happen if you for example change the nameserver in /etc/resolv.conf during httpd run time. Python framework in this httpd server would still be initialized with the old nameserver address and may not be able to resolve the address.

Second note: it is safer to use --name-server option in a FQDN form, i.e. dns.project.net. instead of dns.project.net . With newer IPA versions, nameserver set to dns.project.net would effectively mean this FQDN: dns.project.net.0.pool.ntp.org.
