Hello all!

Is there any known issues with registering a CentOS 6 client with a
CentOS 7 FreeIPA server?  I just tried to register my first C6 client
(fully updated) with our new FreeIPA infrastructure installed on C7, and
I'm getting an NSS error:

args=/usr/sbin/ipa-join -s <> -b
dc=ipa,dc=domain,dc=com -d
stderr=XML-RPC CALL:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>\r\n

   CApath: none
* NSS error -12190
* Closing connection #0
libcurl failed to execute the HTTP POST transaction.  SSL connect error

Looking up that NSS error, it seems to indicate a SSL protocol error.
Looking at my FreeIPA webserver configuration, I'm allowing TLSv1.0,
TLSv1.1, TLSv1.2:

Right, it is SSL_ERROR_PROTOCOL_VERSION_ALERT. Can you show the NSSProtocols from /etc/httpd/conf.d/nss.conf on the server?

The oddest part is that, from the client, I can use wget to connect to
the IPA server, but can not use curl:

[root@hostname ~]# wget --no-check-certificate
--2016-04-05 17:42:50--

They are linked against different crypto providers (OpenSSL and NSS)

However, the same curl command, run from another C7 host, works just
fine.  Something incompatible in the NSS libraries maybe?

It might be helpful to look at the output of:

$ openssl s_client -host -port 443

To test all the protocols you can do a test with each: -tls1, -tls1_1 and -tls1_2
