We are trying to install Identity Manager for testing and learning purposes in
a test lab
environment. We have successfully installed the base product but have run
when trying to setup a domain trust to an AD server.
We are somewhat limited as to how we can change these systems and since they
for replication of many different problems, we need to be cautious as to what
But they are crash and burn systems.
Both the RHEL V7 IdM server system and the W2008 R2 AD server are in the same
and the same dns zone.
So that is the first question....can we create a domain trust between these two
without placing one or the other in a different address subnet or changing the
domain name ?
I have tried changing the realm name for the linux server from lab.us.com for
ipa.lab.us.com and then leaving the AD server in lab.us.com. That gets us a
but then we run into problems with what I believe is the kerberos configuration.
I have tried to deinstall and reinstall the ipa server but the installation is
The ipa-server-install is failing with the following:
[37/38]: tuning directory server
[38/38]: configuring directory to start on boot
Done configuring directory server (dirsrv).
Configuring certificate server (pki-tomcatd): Estimated time 3 minutes 30

[2/22]: configuring certificate server instance
ipa : CRITICAL failed to configure ca instance Command
'/usr/sbin/pkispawn -s CA -f /tmp/tmpLb1CmI' returned non-zero exit status 1
Configuration of CA failed
This happens each time I try to uninstall and reinstall the ipa server on RHEL
Looking at the latest log in /var/log/pki, I see this at the end of the log:

I am no python expert by any means and I'm not sure what this is telling us so
would be greatly appreciated.
