Identity Management (IdM) / IPA replica installation failure using external CA, error invalid XML character (Unicode: 0x0)

Solution In Progress - Updated -


Using an external Certificate Authority / CA, the configuration of an IdM/IPA replica with the command ipa-replica-install may fail in some specific scenario, in the step of the IPA Certificate Authority configuration, with the error:

# ipa-replica-install --setup-ca --setup-dns --forwarder= --forwarder=  /var/lib/ipa/
Configuration of CA failed

And in the /var/log/ipareplica-install.log file:

2014-01-09T08:59:09Z DEBUG stderr=[Fatal Error] :215:93: An invalid XML character (Unicode: 0x0) was found in the element content of the document.
