I'd first try removing /etc/ipa/ca.crt and try the enrollment again. It
should be possible to use the 2.1.3 client in EL 5 to enroll against a
3.x server.

Otherwise we probably need more context from
/var/log/ipaclient-install.log to see how the CA was retrieved.


Thanks for the tip.  I tried it again, and it still failed.  End of
the log:

I just stood up a brand new RHEL 6 client, and it works just fine, so
there is something amiss with RHEL 5 on this.  The time on the RHEL 5
client and the RHEL 6 IdM server is the same, and the cert is valid, so
I don't know why the RHEL 5 system does not like the cert.  Could it be
something with the versions of packages installed on it?


I have the feeling that OpenSSL doesn't like your CA certificate for some reason.

Can you try this:

# openssl s_client -host -port 443 -CAfile /etc/ipa/ca.crt

Adding the -debug flag will add even more output.
