Hi, I am using freeipa in a rhel6 environment with ipa-3.0.0-37.el6 client.
I am working on doing an unattended ipa client installation. I have it working with the following.... /usr/sbin/ipa-client-install -p admin -w <admin_password> -U --no-ntp While this works, while it runs, the <admin_password> value is visable in the output of a ps -ef command on the host when installing the ipa client. # ps -ef |grep ipa root 30284 30283 43 03:31 ? 00:00:01 /usr/bin/python -E /usr/sbin/ipa-client-install -p admin -w <plain_text_password> -U --no-ntp This represents a challenge to security, even though its only minor (as in its only there for a minute or so), but its still there and it is the admin password. Can ipa-client-install be updated to include a parameter to retrieve the admin password from a file? i.e. /usr/bin/python -E /usr/sbin/ipa-client-install -p admin -from-file /tmp/credentials -U --no-ntp That would then protect the admin password. I am not familiar with python coding. Thanks in advance, Les
