I have FreeIPA installed on several types of Linux machines and they are
all experiencing strange issues with certificates and host keys.
Here is the setup:

Server : FreeIPA 4.1.2 on Centos 7
Client 1&2 : FreeIPA 3.0.0-42.el6 with sssd 1.11.6-30.el6_6.4 on CentOS 6.5
Client 3&4 : FreeIPA 4.1.2-1.el7 on Centos 7

First the FreeIPA clients running client 3.0.0 do not seem to be properly
getting their host keys from the server.  Whenever I ssh from one client
to another (or even to the IPA server itself) I am prompted to answer yes
or no to the host key.  The host keys are both listed in the host record
if I login to the domain controller web interface (and match what is on
the server), and the DNS SSHFP records exist also.

It seems that you might be missing the integration between sssd and ssh.
Can you please check you configuration as described here: http://www.freeipa.org/images/1/10/Freeipa30_SSSD_OpenSSH_integration.pdf

I've seen some bug reports that this was a problem with sssd 1.10 but with
a recent (updated today) version of sssd 1.11 I would assume that is not
the issue?

The second issue is that whenver I join a FreeIPA 4.1.2 client, I can't
login with FreeIPA or AD users.  I believe this is due to the fact that
when I login to the domain controller web interface and look at the
freshly enrolled client it says "kerberos key present, host provisioned"
but the next line is "Status No Valid Certificate".  Unenrolling and
re-enrolling the client leads to the same issue with "No Valid

Here is a grep of my client install log filtered for 'certificate'.  I
don't see any errors.

This is because in 4.x we do not automatically provision a cert for the host any more. It was not used for anything. We provisioned it just in case it will be needed but it turns out it was not need and it was an extra step for no reason.
