Right, it is not a very good idea to bake an admin password in the Puppet scripts. Couple options you can follow: - Install clients using pre-created one time password or host keytab (you need to create the client host entry first) - If you still want to use the privileged account to enroll the client, you can also pass it's password to ipa-client-install stdin, when it's running it unattended mode. This way you will avoid having it baked in your configs directly: # cat /root/enrollman_password | ipa-client-install --unattended --principal enrollman HTH. > > ~J > > > On 1/5/15 3:27 AM, Martin Kosek wrote: >> On 12/29/2014 09:54 PM, Dmitri Pal wrote: >>> On 12/20/2014 05:02 AM, Ben .T.George wrote: >>>> Hi >>>> >>>> I was trying to configure centos as ipa client and got failed with that,. >>>> >>>> anyone please help me to configure centos as ipa client through manual >>>> configuration. >>>> >>>> Regards, >>>> Ben >>>> >>>> >>> Sorry for a delayed response. >>> What version of CentOS?
