I just tested an ipa client install on Trusty and other than the ntpd conf bug (which I reported) it works great! the IPA client on Ubuntu has sucked for so long but it finally just works.
My setup is a RHEL 6.5 Server as an IPA Server, DNS, DHCP, and NTP. Then a fresh Ubuntu 14.04 Server install. Running ipa-client-install --enable-dns-updates --force-ntpd works. It joins the domain, pushes the DNS entry, and users are able to login right away even without reboot. -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of FreeIPA, which is subscribed to freeipa in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1202654 Title: ipa client on ubuntu 13.04 doesn't work with ipa server on centos/rhel 6 Status in “freeipa” package in Ubuntu: Incomplete Bug description: Hi, running on CentOS/RHEL 6 the stable FreeIPA Server version 3.0.0 Using an ipa client from 12.04 works as expected. Now I am testing enrolling of Raring and Saucy in FreeIPA and this fails. Client Version is 2.47 (from 3.1.2 pkg) and server version is 2.46 (from RHEL/CentOS 6 3.0.0 pkg) This is no good, because RHEL6/CentOS are the only enterprise distros out there, which do have a working freeipa server (I don't want to use Fedora in a large enterprise environment ;)) So, how can we address this, without using unsupported packages from elsewhere on CentOS/RHEL or backporting the old freeipa client from 12.04 To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/freeipa/+bug/1202654/+subscriptions _______________________________________________ Mailing list: https://launchpad.net/~freeipa Post to : firstname.lastname@example.org Unsubscribe : https://launchpad.net/~freeipa More help : https://help.launchpad.net/ListHelp
