# ipa-client-install --domain f19.ad.test --hostname client.f19.ad.test -p admin -w kokos123 Discovery was successful! Hostname: client.f19.ad.test Realm: F19.AD.TEST DNS Domain: f19.ad.test IPA Server: ipa.f19.ad.test BaseDN: dc=f19,dc=ad,dc=test Continue to configure the system with these values?

Client uninstall complete.

Thus something like:
ipa-client-install ... Valid From: Thu Apr 18 08:09:16 2013 UTC Valid Until: Mon Apr 18 08:09:16 2033 UTC Joining realm failed: Host is already joined. Use --force-join to forcefully join the server (overwrites client data on server) ...
