How do you expect this to be fixed in 4.4.4, while proposed already has
4.6.2? The test should be ignored....

  failing autopkgtest due to password issue by nss

Status in freeipa package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I was failed by autopkgtests of freeipa, but not the old "ip route output 
changed" case.

  It essentially does this and fails:
  $ apt install freeipa-server freeipa-server-dns freeipa-server-trust-ad 
freeipa-common freeipa-client freeipa-admintools freeipa-tests python-ipaclient 
python-ipalib python-ipaserver python-ipatests

  Bionic-as-is: installs ok
  Bionic-Proposed: installs ok

  In LP Infra:
  dpkg: error processing package freeipa-client (--configure):
   installed freeipa-client package post-installation script subprocess 
returned error exit status 1

  Use Pinning to get the autopkgtest style:
  # cat /etc/apt/preferences.d/nssonlyproposed
  Package: *
  Pin: release a=bionic
  Pin-Priority: 1001
  Package: libnss3 libnss3-tools libnss3-dev libnss3-dbg
  Pin: release a=bionic-proposed
  Pin-Priority: 1002
  Bionic-nss-only-from-Proposed: TRIGGERS the issue

  freeipa-client is in the postinst calling this:
  python2 -c 'from ipapython.certdb import update_ipa_nssdb; update_ipa_nssdb()'
  Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
    File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/ipapython/", line 64, in 
    File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/ipapython/", line 53, in 
    File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/ipapython/", line 149, in 
      self.run_certutil(["-N", "-f", password_filename])
    File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/ipapython/", line 142, in 
      return, stdin, **kwargs)
    File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/ipapython/", line 515, in 
      raise CalledProcessError(p.returncode, arg_string, str(output))
  subprocess.CalledProcessError: Command '/usr/bin/certutil -d /etc/ipa/nssdb 
-N -f /etc/ipa/nssdb/pwdfile.txt' returned non-zero exit status 255

  That is - if called alone complaining about the passwd:
  # /usr/bin/certutil -d /etc/ipa/nssdb -N -f /etc/ipa/nssdb/pwdfile.txt
  Invalid password.
  certutil: Could not set password for the slot: SEC_ERROR_BAD_PASSWORD: The 
security password entered is incorrect.

  Note that there is a related freeipa fix in later versions:
     freeipa (4.6.2-4) unstable; urgency=medium                                 
       * client.postinst: Migrate from old nssdb only if it exists.

  And since that change freeipa has:
  if [ -f /etc/ipa/nssdb/cert8.db ]; then
  around the call.

  It also changed the import slightly - now the python being:

  python2 -c 'from ipaclient.install.client import update_ipa_nssdb;

  That in the "all-proposed" case with the cert8.db file copied over is still 
failing but differently:
  /usr/bin/certutil -d /etc/ipa/nssdb -L -f /etc/ipa/nssdb/pwdfile.txt
  certutil: function failed: SEC_ERROR_BAD_DATABASE: security library: bad 

  The merge of nss was a minor bump 3.34->3.35
  Also this is the nss version from Debian with the freeipa version from 
Debian. They seem to work together there.

  I don't fully understand it yet - so filing this bug for a discussion.
  I need the help of tjaalton who did the freeipa changes - maybe he knows what 
is going on.

  Do we have to:
  - rebuild freeipa against newer nss?
  - just mark something as bad test
  - something completely else?
