I’m trying to install FreeIPA on CentOS 7. The server I’m using is a Google
Cloud Compute Engine instance. For some reason, they assign all instances a /32
bit netmask on the internal interface even though you have your own private /20
When installing freeipa on these vm's, you get the error "Error: Invalid IP
Address 10.128.0.5: cannot use IP network address 10.128.0.5”
Here are the settings for the interface.
eth0: flags=4163<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 1460
inet 10.128.0.5 netmask 255.255.255.255 broadcast 10.128.0.5
ether 42:01:0a:80:00:05 txqueuelen 1000 (Ethernet)
RX packets 17904 bytes 116212393 (110.8 MiB)
RX errors 0 dropped 0 overruns 0 frame 0
TX packets 19001 bytes 3287390 (3.1 MiB)
TX errors 0 dropped 0 overruns 0 carrier 0 collisions 0
How can I bypass that error and should /32 mask detection really be there?
