Details of autodiscovery and suggestions how to configure are explained
in the man page for ipa-client-install, section on DNS autodiscovery.

Thanks for your hints, but I have another question after read the man
pages. The best practice register client to ipa server is using --domain

You still would need _kerberos TXT record for runtime Kerberos realm
detection unless your krb5.conf would contain domain_realms entry for
your DNS domain.

Using --domain option is, of course, easy.

I've tried to create new record on anotherdomain.com. (eg. original dns
record was _ldap._tcp.mydomain.co.id, and IP create new record for

New dns record on anotherdomain.com is "_ldap._tcp, _ntp._udp,
_kpasswd._udp, _kpasswd._tcp, _kerberos._udp, _kerberos._tcp,
_kerberos-master._udp, _kerberos-master._tcp".

anotherdomain.com $ ipa-client-install
Discovery was successful!
Hostname: spectre.anotherdomain.com

Is it safe? Or just use --domain parameter?
