#2203 [RFE] ipa-getkeytab should auto-detect the ipa server name
Closed: Fixed None Opened 12 years ago by dpal.


Description of problem:

Ipa-getkeytab command expect the ipa server name and it fails if no server name
is provided.

Currently the ipa server name has to be mentioned even if the command is
executed  from ipa server or client.

expectation: ipa-getkeytab detects the ipa server(if configured)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. execute ipa-getkeytab without -s <ipa_server> option

Actual results: ipa-getkeytab fails if server name is not provided.
ipa-getkeytab -p HTTP/vm123.example.com -k /tmp/HTTP_vm123.example.com
Usage: ipa-getkeytab [-qP?] [-q|--quiet] [-s|--server Server Name]
[-p|--principal Kerberos Service Principal Name] [-k|--keytab Keytab File Name]

Expected results:

ipa-getkeytab detects the ipa server name if the box is configured as ipa

It is an easy fix for a person not that familiar with the project details.

there is a duplicate ticket: #5210

ab+simo: not very hard to do this one. Would do it gradually, first starting with config file, doing DNS SRV can be done later


  • f12f56f Support sourcing the IPA server name from config
