Hi Simpson,

I suspect that ipa-client-install had problems verifying a server during the
discovery, so it may have assumed some values itself, it probably did it wrong.
Details are in the ipaclient-install.log.

So are you saying that FreeIPA actually discovered on an AD server? Do you DNS
domain with SRV records for FreeIPA set up? If yes, you can pass it via
"--domain" option of ipa-client-install, without using hard coded server list
via "--server" options.
