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..




What platform are you using (Fedora? CentOS? RHEL?) and what version of FreeIPA
are you using?

We still have not received answer for that part, though it is obvious the platform will be something RHEL-6.x derived.

Also, I following error in the log
java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused
So it seems some port is occupied. Is your port 8443 occupied? Maybe by running
httpd daemon before the installation?


Looking at the dirsrv log that Remigio sent me privately, it does not look that 8443 is to blame.

It is, however, really strange that ipaserver-install.log reports that DS restart fails with following error, even though DS says it is listening on that port:

2015-05-14T09:28:49Z CRITICAL Failed to restart the directory server. See the installation log for details.

Could it be maybe a SELinux based problem? You can check for AVCs with

# ausearch -m avc -ts today

Final suggestion: this does not solve the root cause, but I would really suggest doing the installation on RHEL/CentOS 7.1 as it contains FreeIPA 4.1 which is much better than the old FreeIPA 3.0 present in RHEL-6.x. This is our general recommendation for new deployments anyway.
