Solution Verified - Updated -

Issue

If using the RHEL 6.1 tech preview of IPA 2, an IPA client will not be able to join an IPA domain with default configuration, the ipa-client-install script will fail with error:

Joining realm failed because of failing XML-RPC request.
  This error may be caused by incompatible server/client major versions.
