#5949 ipa-server-install: improve prompt on interactive installation
Closed: Fixed None Opened 5 years ago by pvoborni.

Ticket was cloned from Red Hat Bugzilla (product Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7): Bug 1340880

Description of problem:
When re-installing IPA, ipa-server-install asks for the IP address (this seems
only to appear when uninstalling + installing IPA again and not on the first
installation). One of the message texts should be enhanced to be more clear how
to continue with the installation. It is required to enter at least one IP and
when you're asked again, you have to press [Enter] to continue with the
installation.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
ipa-server-4.2.0-15.el7_2.15.x86_64

How reproducible:
Always.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Uninstall IPA (ipa-server-install --uninstall)
2. Install IPA again (ipa-server-install)

Actual results:
During the interactive setup, the user is asked to enter the IP address to use:
> ...
> Enter the IP address to use, or press Enter to finish.
> Please provide the IP address to be used for this host name: 192.168.122.111
> Please provide the IP address to be used for this host name:

Expected results:
The prompt asking the user for the IP should be extended. Currently after
entering an IP, it asks the same question again and again. Only if you just
press [Enter], the installation continues.

The message should make clear that at least one IP is required (that's already
in the text) and pressing [Enter] on a further appearance will continue with
the installation. Something like:
> ...
> Enter the IP address to use, or press Enter to finish.
> Please provide the IP address to be used for this host name: 192.168.122.111
> Please provide the IP address to be used for this host name. Leave blank to
continue with the installation:
