4.62. ipa-client

Updated ipa-client packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The ipa-client package provides a tool to enroll a machine to an IPA version 2 server. IPA (Identity, Policy, Audit) is an integrated solution to provide centrally managed identity, that is, machine. user. virtual machines, groups, and authentication credentials.

Bug Fix

BZ#818313
If the client requested keys for encryption types that the server did not support, and the requested key was not returned, the ipa-getkeytab utility, and consequently the client enrollment, failed. With this update, the ipa-getkeytab utility has been modified to no longer fail if the key is not retrieved; a warning message is now displayed instead.
All users of ipa-client are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.

Bug Fixes

BZ#813387
During the installation, the ipa-client-install utility created a zero-length /etc/sysconfig/network file. Consequently, the information about the network configuration was not specified. The underlying source code has been modified and the installation process no longer erases the configuration file.
