#1579 Reduce IPA dependency on the name resolution
Closed: Invalid None Opened 10 years ago by rcritten.


Current kerberos implementation in IPA requires reverse name resolution. This creates problems in the cases when IPA is installed as an internal component of a bigger solution. Also IPA installation fails if there are two reverse addresses.

This bug is to remove the dependency on the proper name resolution.

Per Simo's comment:

I guess we can add a switch for the install, an we have some patches to prevent libkrb5 from using the reverse address that should already be in fedora (not sure about RHEL6), but beyond that if a kerb app fails on multiple answers to a PTR request there isn't much we can do.

Moving the ticket to the next month iteration.

I posted few test cases to the BZ. From what I see, we don't have to make additional changes.

Closing the ticket as no relevant issue was found. No comments were written to Bugzilla Bug either. This ticket can be reopened if needed.
