I’m trying to install FreeIPA on CentOS 7. The server I’m using is a Google

When installing freeipa on these vm's, you get the error "Error: Invalid IP

Here are the settings for the interface.

How can I bypass that error and should /32 mask detection really be there?


Hello Jeff,
this issue was already fixed upstream [1]. The fix is part of 4.4.2 release. I'm afraid it's not available in CentOS yet. The easiest way would be to wait for the release to get to the CentOS or use Fedora instead.
