Hi list!

I have a challenging setup i need some help with.

My topology:

There is no problem with Internal clients. They register/enroll and then work 
like a charm.
The challenge is how external access IPA server.

Firewall does a DNAT from external interface to internal one

DNATed services are:

I'm using apache with mod_proxy config to pass http/https traffic from clients 
to actual ipa server.
It's done using following config:

<VirtualHost *:80>
ProxyPreserveHost On
ProxyRequests Off
ProxyPass / http://A.B.C.D/ timeout=300 keepalive=On
ServerName id.osec.pl

<VirtualHost *:443>
SSLEngine On
SSLProxyEngine On
SSLCertificateFile /etc/pki/tls/certs/osec.crt
SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/pki/tls/private/osec.key
SSLCACertificateFile /etc/pki/tls/certs/certum.crt
ProxyPreserveHost On
ProxyRequests Off
ProxyPass / https://A.B.C.D/ timeout=300 keepalive=On
ServerName id.osec.pl

DNS SRV records are setup correctly and autodiscovery works.

When I run ipa-client-install --mkhomedir i get a nicely working setup.
External clients complain about ssl cert:

[root@biuro1 ~]# ipa-client-install
WARNING: ntpd time&date synchronization service will not be configured as
conflicting service (chronyd) is enabled

Using existing certificate '/etc/ipa/ca.crt'.
Discovery was successful!

It seems that client does not like the cert presented by "proxying" server.

Am I doing something fundamentally wrong here?
Can registration process be proxied by apache/mod_proxy?
So you have two different certificates in use here and your client
doesn't know about the other certificate (from your proxy). You need
either to deliver that certificate to the client by yourself or change
your proxying technology to something different.
For example, you can use sniproxy which doesn't require in-the-middle
certificate. https://github.com/dlundquist/sniproxy
