#1246 IPA installation with --no-host-dns fails
Closed: Fixed None Opened 11 years ago by mkosek.

--no-host-dns should allow us to install IPA server on a hostname without DNS resolvable name. Currently, it doesn't:

# ipa-server-install --hostname foo.bar --no-host-dns

The log file for this installation can be found in /var/log/ipaserver-install.log
==============================================================================
This program will set up the FreeIPA Server.

This includes:
  * Configure the Network Time Daemon (ntpd)
  * Create and configure an instance of Directory Server
  * Create and configure a Kerberos Key Distribution Center (KDC)
  * Configure Apache (httpd)

To accept the default shown in brackets, press the Enter key.

Enter the fully qualified domain name of the computer
on which you're setting up server software. Using the form
<hostname>.<domainname>
Example: master.example.com.


Server host name [foo.bar]:

Unexpected error - see ipaserver-install.log for details:
 Unable to resolve host name, check /etc/hosts or DNS name resolution
