Hi-

I'm new to FreeIPA.  I'm installing on an up-to-date Fedora 18
system from the freeipa packages available with Fedora 18.  When
running ipa-server-install, the install process fails here:

The tail of the installer log looks like this:

Is there a workaround or fix available?  I haven't found any
relevant information via a web search, and a few searches on
bugzilla.redhat.com have come up empty.


We've seen just one other report of this and unfortunately the VM was
removed before we could do a lot of diagnosis. What we saw was that
certutil output garbage when requesting the RA admin certificate. Can
you look in /var/log/ipaserver-install.log for the last certutil
command? Does stdout contain a lot of garbage characters in it? It
should consist of a base64-encoded CSR.

Ok, easily reproduced with this version of nss. I filed
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=910584

For a workaround you might try to yum downgrade nss. You may need to
downgrade several other subpackages as well like nss-tools and
nss-sysinit depending on your install.

I think you can safely upgrade again once the install is complete.

I did some real quick smoke testing and this seems to work. I did:

# yum downgrade nss nss-*
# ipa-server-install ...
# yum update nss

This is with a dogtag CA. I didn't test a selfsign CA.

This was a single install.

Preparing a replica will fail with the error "Certificate issuance failed" because of the certutil problem.
