I perused the log. Seems that the failures you're experiencing are not 
relevant to the patch itself,
since the newly added tests passed.

This is problem with test_range_plugin.py tests that has been there for 
quite a while, the parameters
of the ranges such as size, and base ID/RID/secondary RID are hardcoded 
in the test case.

I agree. This has not been relevant until now, since we did not do much 
testing on IPA instances
with trusts set up, and even then there's random factor in having the 
overlap with the already created
trust range.

I'd propose fixing this in a separate effort as a part of continouous 
integration improvements. I see it
as a separate issue of its own.

What do you think?
