 /usr/bin/gsk8capicmd -cert -add -db /etc/security/ldap/ldap.kdb -file /etc/ipa/ca.crt -label ipa_server_cert
 /usr/bin/gsk8capicmd -keydb -changepw -new_pw 3edc#EDC3edc#EDC -db /etc/security/ldap/ldap.kdb

Check the configuration of /etc/krb5/krb5.conf:

                       default_realm = SERVER.CR
                       default_keytab_name = FILE:/etc/krb5/krb5.keytab
                       dns_lookup_realm = true
                       dns_lookup_kdc = true

                        SERVER.CR = {
                        kdc =
                        master_kdc =
                        admin_server =
                        default_domain =
                        pkinit_anchors = FILE:/etc/ipa/ca.crt

              = SERVER.CR
              = SERVER.CR
              = SERVER.CR

                       kdc = FILE:/var/krb5/log/krb5kdc.log
                       admin_server = FILE:/var/krb5/log/kadmin.log
                       kadmin_local = FILE:/var/krb5/log/kadmin_local.log
                       default = SYSLOG:info:local1'

Check the configuration of /etc/ldap.conf:

                URI ldap://
                tls_cacert /etc/ipa/ca.crt
                BIND_TIMELIMIT 5
                TIMELIMIT 15
                binddn uid=admin,cn=users,cn=accounts,dc=server,dc=cr
                bindpw {{ipaadminpassword}}
                sudoers_base ou=sudoers,dc=server,dc=cr

Restart ldap service:


Sudo configuration edit /etc/netsvc.conf and add:

hosts = bind4,local
