Closed: Fixed None Opened 12 years ago by jcholast.

ipa-server-install --setup-dns fails with:

2011-02-15 16:15:47,561 DEBUG list index out of range
  File "/usr/sbin/ipa-server-install", line 948, in <module>

  File "/usr/sbin/ipa-server-install", line 884, in main

  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/ipaserver/install/bindinstance.py", line 300, in create_instance
    if not installutils.record_in_hosts(self.ip_address, self.fqdn):

  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/ipaserver/install/installutils.py", line 162, in record_in_hosts
    hosts_ip = line.split()[0]

Example of said /etc/hosts: host # this comment gets parsed as a hostname too!

# the blank line above causes trouble
# the line above is erroneous and should be ignored
