I’ve been put in charge of implementing a solution that uses LDAP and kerberos authentication. At first thought I should use openLDAP and Kerberos but found freeIPA and looks really cool, however, when trying to install I keep getting this error about configuration of CA:

Configuration of CA failed

I’m including two install logs, one with dns-setup and the other without it. Don’t really know what I’m doing wrong, thought maybe I should allow connections to certain ports in ip tables or something but have no clue really and I’m quite new to this, help please..




can you please check error logs of DS?

And please post here an error why DS restart failed.
