Can you check with dig or host command if the hostname is really
resolvable on that machine? do you have proper resolver in /etc/resolv.conf?
*hostname.mydoma.in* is actually the DNS entry for the old FreeIPA
server, which actually resolves, but only to an IPv6 address of course.
I can continue the installation though by entering "yes".
I then get asked:
Enter the IP address to use, or press Enter to finish.

When I enter the IPv6 address of the new replica host it doesn't
accept but infinitely asks this question instead.
Have you pressed enter twice? It should end prompt and continue with
Honestly, I can't see what I might have done wrong.
Old FreeIPA has hostname is in sync forward and reverse record.
New FreeIPA host as well has hostname that symmetrically resolves,
even though the hostname is using another second level domain.
