Niranjan, may I have access to your test machine.

It's a vm on my laptop. I am trying to reproduce on another VM
to which i can give access. I will provide the details of this VM as soon
as possible.

Mean while i am providing ns-slapd access logs, ipa-logs and pkispawn logs.

Something curious is that the installer is waiting for DS to restart but it is looking like DS has not received the terminaison signal.

2014-12-09T09:37:49Z DEBUG Waiting for CA to start...
2014-12-09T09:42:45Z DEBUG Waiting for CA to start...

[09/Dec/2014:04:37:41 -0500] - Warning: Adding configuration attribute "nsslapd-security"

<< here we should expect a restart of DS >>

First why DS did not receive the restart order and then as it is still running (DS looks idle) what does the install is waiting for.

The biggest and the most interesting feature of FreeIPA 4.1.2 is support for 
the two factor authentication using HOTP/TOTP compatible software tokens like 
FreeOTP (open source compatible alternative to Google Authenticator) and 
hardware tokens like Yubikeys. This feature allows Kerberos and LDAP clients of 
a FreeIPA server to authenticate using the normal account password as the first 
factor and an OTP token as a second factor. For those environments where a 2FA 
solution is already in place, FreeIPA can act as a proxy via RADIUS. More about 
this feature can be read here.
If you want to see this feature in downstream distros sooner rather than later 
we need your help!
Please give it a try and provide feedback. We really, really need it!

Any hints on how to overcome the above error.
The error is obviously in Directory Server restart. I am not sure what causes

2014-12-07T11:16:25Z CRITICAL Failed to restart the directory server ([Errno 2]
No such file or directory:

The first restart worked and it uses the same call, AFAIK. It would be
interesting to see the latest logs of the instance after ipa-server-install

# systemctl status dirsrv@EXAMPLE-ORG.service

It may have some useful logs that would reveal what happened.
