Is that correct? > The page being unauthenticated is normal - anyone can submit a certificate request; it is then enqueued for a CA admin or agent to review and approve/reject. Alternatively, you can configure a certificate profile to authenticate against the IPA directory for automatic approval (but the overall interface will still be unauthenticated).
The certificate and key for admin access to Dogtag (so you can approve certificate requests) are found in /root/ca-agent.p12 on the FreeIPA server. > I know this is a weird use case and not necessarily a FreeIPA problem but > if someone could advise, I'd greatly appreciate it. > --steve > -- > Manage your subscription for the Freeipa-users mailing list: > https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/freeipa-users > Go to http://freeipa.org for more info on the project -- Manage your subscription for the Freeipa-users mailing list: https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/freeipa-users Go to http://freeipa.org for more info on the project
