What was in the console output and ipaclient-install.log?

Fails to install replica on given machine due to lack of required parameters.

is very general so I wonder if the complete message was understandable, i.e. admin can know what is missing.

For upcoming months or more the FreeIPA/IdM team is focusing on stability, testability of FreeIPA/IdM and thus postponing any RFEs or non-critical bugs.

Thank you taking your time and submitting this request for Red Hat Enterprise Linux. The request was cloned to the upstream tracker a long time ago (see link to the upstream ticket above), but it was unfortunately not given priority either in the upstream project, nor in Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Given that this request is not planned for a close release, it is highly unlikely it will be fixed in this major version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. We are therefore closing the request as WONTFIX.

To request that Red Hat reconsiders the decision, please reopen the Bugzilla with the help of Red Hat Customer Service and provide additional business and/or technical details about it's importance to you. Please note that you can still track this request or even offer help in the referred upstream Pagure ticket to expedite the solution.
