Description Petr Spacek 2016-07-25 11:12:07 UTC
Description of problem:
ipa-replica-install --domain=<IPA primary domain> option does not work and always fails.

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

How reproducible:
100 %

Steps to Reproduce:
$ ipa-replica-install --admin-password=<password> --principal=admin --domain=<IPA primary domain> --unattended --setup-dns --auto-forwarders

Actual results:
Checking DNS domain, please wait ...
Usage: ipa-replica-install [options] REPLICA_FILE

ipa-replica-install: error: option --domain: DNS zone <IPA primary domain> already exists in DNS and is handled by server(s): <some IPA servers>
ipa.ipapython.install.cli.install_tool(Replica): ERROR    The ipa-replica-install command failed. See /var/log/ipareplica-install.log for more information

Expected results:
Installation should be allowed if all the options are correct.

Additional info:
This is a regression as this used to work in the past.

Workaround for domain level 1 is easy: Install IPA client first and then run ipa-replica-install without --domain option.
