I have renamed the default 'admin' account to something else to avoid

I have been able to work-around this by using the --skip-conncheck
option, but I would still like to have the script go through that
process if possible to get the added verification that things are working.

Is there any way to use a different account name than 'admin' with
ipa-replica-install?  I'm on CentOS 7 using ipa-server-4.1.0-18.el7.

There isn't currently. I opened

The conn checker, ipa-replica-conncheck, actually takes the principal as an argument but this is hardcoded as "admin" in ipa-replica-install.
