Description of problem:

While requesting a certificate from an IPA client, I am seeing the following error:

[root@rhel-2 certs]# openssl req -new -newkey rsa:2048 -keyout ipauser1.key -nodes -out ipauser1.csr -subj '/CN=ipauser1'
Generating a RSA private key
writing new private key to 'ipauser1.key'

[root@rhel-2 certs]# ipa cert-request ipauser1.csr --principal=ipauser1 --certificate-out=ipauser1.crt

http.client.ResponseNotReady: Request-sent
ipa: ERROR: an internal error has occurred

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[root@rhel-2 certs]# 

How reproducible:
Unknown.  So far only happened the first time I tried to request a cert successfully.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Setup IPA server and client
2.  Add ipauser1 user
3.  openssl req -new -newkey rsa:2048 -keyout ipauser1.key -nodes -out ipauser1.csr -subj '/CN=ipauser1'
4.  ipa cert-request ipauser1.csr --principal=ipauser1 --certificate-out=ipauser1.crt

Actual results:
Shows error above.

Expected results:
no error and writes cert to ipauser1.crt file.

Steps to Reproduce

This issue can be forcibly reproduced:

  1. on client, authenticate and issue an IPA command (e.g. ipa user-find)
  2. on server, forcibly delete the current user's session cache from /run/ipa/ccaches
  3. issue another command. It will fail. Observer that the server sent a 401 response, then the client throws an error and the request fails at the server with a 500 status.
