I have a large number of legacy hosts with upper-case host names, that
I'd like to configure as IPA clients. However ipa client refuses to
accept upper case hostnames during configuration time.
I think this derives from the fact that the kerberos5 database stores
host names in a case sensitive way and requires that the DNS hostname
matches the server hostname case.
My question is: Is it mandatory that the hostname be lower-cased, or
is there a safe workaround that will allow IPA client to work with
hosts that have upper case host names ?
Thanks in advance!
