Can somebody help with the following problem(s) I’ve encountered while
trying to install the freeipa server?

Problem #1:
On fedora 20, I have:
1. using yum install acquired the free-ipa-server package.
2. ran ipa-server-install
— that has failed with “CA did not start in 300s”

One thing that’s noticeable in the logs (the snippet is included below) is
that request for request ''

has 443 as port as for before all the requests for 8443 (e.g.., same
(manual) request on port 8443 succeeds). Seems like an install script
somewhere has the wrong port ?

Problem #2:
The next problem I’m encountering and doesn’t seem to be related to the CA
setup is on the next step of “kinit admin”. It fails with “generic pre
authentication failure while getting initial credentials"

stracing kinit show that it tried to open file “/var/lib/sss/pubconf/
kdcinfo.GATEWAY.2WIRE.NET <>”) and fails
with “no such file” error.  “pubconf” dir only has empty “krb5.include.d”.

I don’t know if this failure is due to the fact that the setup didn’t run
all the way and some configuration is missing or this is a separate issue .

Are these bugs that need to be filled with bugzilla or am I doing something

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you.
