Red Hat RHCE/RHCSA 7 Cert Guide Virtual Machine Setup
I know I'm breaking one of the cardinal rules, but this is a cross-post from the certification forum.

OK, I'm trying to follow the instructions in Appendix D of the Red Hat RHCE/RHCSA 7 Cert Guide.

Following the setup guide for the IPA box, I'm running into the following issue.

First, I've set up three servers, Server1, Server2, and IPA. Server1 functions as a bridge to the internet for the other two.

With my IPA server, when trying to set up the ipa running the command

ipa-server-install --setup-dns
I get the error

Checking DNS domain, please wait ...
ipa.ipapython.install.cli.install_tool(Server): ERROR    DNS zone already exists in DNS and is handled by server(s):,
ipa.ipapython.install.cli.install_tool(Server): ERROR    The ipa-server-install command failed. See /var/log/ipaserver-install.log for more information

Look in the ipaserver-install.log and it just repeats that error.

I attempted to do the install with the network connection disabled and it fails when it gets to the point of checking DNS and times out.

Could I get pointed in the right direction?


Note: I understand what the error is. is a domain out there on the interwebs. What I'm trying to figure out is how to set up the IPA as explained by the book's companion website so that I can follow the examples.
