  free-ipa-server install fails

Status in freeipa package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  clean install ubuntu 16.04, kernel 4.4.0-79, running ipa-server-
  install after installing freeipa-server always fails. It successfully
  gets through all 46 previous steps, and fails on pki-tomcatd:

  Configuring certificate server (pki-tomcatd). Estimated time: 3 minutes 30 
    [1/28]: creating certificate server user
    [2/28]: configuring certificate server instance
  ipa.ipaserver.install.cainstance.CAInstance: CRITICAL Failed to configure CA 
instance: Command '/usr/sbin/pkispawn -s CA -f /tmp/tmpIHv1S_' returned 
non-zero exit status 255
  ipa.ipaserver.install.cainstance.CAInstance: CRITICAL See the installation 
logs and the following files/directories for more information:
  ipa.ipaserver.install.cainstance.CAInstance: CRITICAL   
    [error] RuntimeError: CA configuration failed.
  ipa.ipapython.install.cli.install_tool(Server): ERROR    CA configuration 
  ipa.ipapython.install.cli.install_tool(Server): ERROR    The 
ipa-server-install command failed. See /var/log/ipaserver-install.log for more 

  CA configuration failed. Something is certainly wrong when the
  software can't be installed on a newly installed ubuntu box.

  Namely, the script seems to choke when trying to write out the config

  2017-06-16T07:09:49Z DEBUG Process finished, return code=255
  2017-06-16T07:09:49Z DEBUG stdout=ERROR:  File '/etc/pki/default.cfg' is 
either missing or is NOT a regular file!

  usage: pkispawn [-s <subsystem>] [-h] [-v] [-p <prefix>] [-f <file>]

  PKI Instance Installation and Configuration

  There's nowhere in the documentation, in the script, in the packages,
  anywhere, that says I should first create a /etc/pki/default.cfg file,
  nor what that file should contain (it appears the script is trying to
  generate that file itself but doesn't). A fix would be appreciated.
