Even though I already have a ntp server, I setup my newly
created freeipa kdc to do that too (it is a slave to my primary ntp).
I then build a centos host to be the test client. Just to make sure it
can see and use auth's ntp, I tested with ntpdate:
[root@centos64 ~]# ntpdate auth
8 Feb 08:13:35 ntpdate: adjust time server 10.0.0.11 offset -0.003097 sec
so far so good, so how about running ipa-client-install?
[root@centos64 ~]# hostname
[root@centos64 ~]# ipa-client-install --hostname=`hostname -f`
Discovery was successful!
DNS Domain: domain.com
IPA Server: auth.in.domain.com
[so far so good!]
Continue to configure the system with these values? [no]: yes
User authorized to enroll computers: admin
Synchronizing time with KDC...

Please check that 123 UDP port is opened.

But, it had not problems using ntpdate against auth. to add insult to
injury, the log claims it is using ntpdate:
2014-02-08T13:14:31Z DEBUG args=/usr/sbin/ntpdate -U ntp -s -b -v

Could it be it is pissed because it was in sync to begin with? I mean,
if we run the exact command the log file claims to have run,
[root@centos64 ~]# /usr/sbin/ntpdate -U ntp -s -b -v auth.in.domain.com| echo $?
We see it was successful.
I am feeling rather clueless here...
