Hi In order to better assist on another thread in this list, I installed FreeIPA Server in a throwaway VM. Unfortunately the FreeIPA Server Install repeatedly fails with: Configuration of client side components failed! ipa-client-install returned: Command ''/usr/sbin/ipa-client-install' '--on-master' '--unattended' '--domain' 'my.silly.example.com' '--server' 'tst-ldap.my.silly.example.com' '--realm' 'MY.SILLY.EXAMPLE.COM' '--hostname' 'tst-ldap.my.silly.example.com'' returned non-zero exit status 1 [root@tst-ldap etc]# This is on a newly setup OEL 7.1 VM, in a VirtualBox VM hosted on OSX 10.10.5. Googling shows similar errors on second install of FreeIPA Server. I get it on first install. (I roll-backed the VM after every failed attempt). Some points that may or may not be relevant: 1) ipa --version VERSION: 4.1.0, API_VERSION: 2.112 2) Part way through the install I get “WARNING: Your system is running out of entropy, you may experience long delays” 2) I have a Fedora repository enabled… 3) The domain I used “my.silly.example.com” is a "Mickey Mouse" domain, not resolvable to anything real via DNS, but is part of the fully qualified hostname of the vm. 4) The only obvious “ERROR” I can find is in the ipaclient-install.log ERROR Cannot connect to the server due to generic error: cannot connect to 'https://tst-ldap.my.silly.example.com/ipa/json': Internal Server Error
Looks like that is the cause of the install failure. You can find details on that in /var/log/httpd/error_log. That is where I'd start looking.
