From the UI or from the CLI, add a host where the hostname has a trailing space
ipa host-add "myhost .testrelm"
host added successfully
ipa: ERROR: invalid 'hostname': Leading and trailing spaces are not allowed
hostnames should be limited to a-z, 0-9 and -.
The error message you will receive will be something like "invalid 'fqdn': may
only include letters, numbers and -.
The character set is defined in http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc1123
Looks like Kerberos has limited support for non-ascii characters, see ticket #1845
Pushed the current patch:
Lets deal with internationalized domains in #1845.
