Allegedly, on or about 27 March 2018, Peter Bittner sent:
The IPA Server hostname must not resolve to localhost
(127.0.0.1). A routable IP address must be used. [...]
Is there any way to make a local install happen? Or what do I have to
It wants an IP that can be reached by other equipment. It may be
sufficient to use an address that other equipment on your LAN can
access (like the 192.168.0.0 range of IPs), or you may need a public IP
And if you have a routable IP, your computer's hostname should point to
it, too, not the local loopback IP. So if your /etc/hosts file looks
127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.localdomain hostname hostname.localdomain
Move the non-local addresses out of the 127.0.0.1 information line,
more like this kind of thing:
127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.localdomain
192.168.0.1 mycomputer mycomputer.example.com

There is no point trying to privately email me, I only get to see
the messages posted to the mailing list.
A positive attitude is worth the effort if it annoys enough people.
