Hi Alexander, Thanks for your reply and I do remember very well your feedback of course in relation to this issue.
The instructions are very simple, no discussion about that and I followed step by step ad exception of this step: Configure all replicas to use the new password by editing /etc/pki-ca/password.conf for Dogtag 9 or /etc/pki/pki-tomcat/password.conf for Dogtag 10: Which is not that clear to be honest as it is referring to replicas and not the master server itself. I do not have any replica for this server, I am trying to set the first one in fact, so I don't think that step need to be re-produced in my case, unless I am really missing something in that paragraph.

Please follow instructions in the FreeIPA's howto link above. Really, they tell you where and how you should change DM password. As I said before, you need to change more places which recorded the password at the time of install. You claim that the instruction does not work but it is very clear from the logs above that you haven't updated all places where DM password was recorded and as such, you get some code using older version of the DM password. This older version of DM password comes from one of the fails you actually did not change. -- / Alexander Bokovoy -- Manage your subscription for the Freeipa-users mailing list: https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/freeipa-users Go to http://freeipa.org for more info on the project
