I have zero confidence in any of the install and uninstall scripts. And
this is on RHEL systems. On unofficial ones like Ubuntu, things are even
more broken. I really like freeipa, but so far even in a smallish lab
environment, it has been a nightmare. I am really tempted to just go back
to NIS. Does anyone have any ideas or proposals for making things more
robust ? At the very least, I think that these sort of modifications to
system files should only happen with package install/removal. Any changes
that ipa's scripts do should be local to ipa's internal state. Better would
be to have an internal ipa database sort of thing which keeps track of what
the current state is so that even if a script dies, which has happened
often, the next attempt reads the database and figures out what happened
earlier.
