Can you give me a more detailled help ?

Well, this is one of the reasons we're deprecating this feature, because it hasn't been well-tested since v1 and is ridden with corner cases.

I think the only solution is going to be to in direct code changes to the IPA python scripts to match what your PKCS#12 files contain. If it is signed by a root CA then chances are if you simply skip the step where the CA is loaded and trusted then things may just work.

It is failing in ipaserver/install/certs.p12 in the call to find_root_cert_from_pkcs12(). Either it is simply an issue of our identifying the CA or one isn't being loaded at all.

You can do: certutil -L -d /etc/dirsrv/slapd-YOUR_REALM to list the certificates that were loaded. It may be that the CA was loaded but we aren't detecting the nickname, in which case you could simply hardcode it into the python file for a workaround, something like:

ca_names = ['CA nickname']

    No. The PKCS#12 file that contains your server private key and cert
    needs to also contain the CA that signed it.

                 Your system may be partly configured.
                 Run /usr/sbin/ipa-server-install --uninstall to clean up.

                 Where I have to put the CA certficate ?

             It needs to be in the PKCS#12 file.
