Let me correct my last entry......in looking at the log files, I did come across this error and the end of the ipaserver-install.log but
that was not one of the files or directories that had to be deleted  as per the corrective list of actions:
2014-10-07T12:53:04Z DEBUG The ipa-server-install command failed, exception: OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/var/lib/ipa/pki-ca/publish'


pkidestroy -s CA -i pki-tomcat
rm -rf /var/log/pki/pki-tomcat
rm -rf /etc/sysconfig/pki-tomcat
rm -rf /etc/sysconfig/pki/tomcat/pki-tomcat
rm -rf /var/lib/pki/pki-tomcat
rm -rf /etc/pki/pki-tomcat

My appologies if this is a repeat but for some reason Outlook has seen fit to delete or
possibly hide the folder in which have saved my entries from this subject.

I have reconfigured a RHEL V7 system so as to exist in a different subnet and domain
from our AD server to allow us to create trust domains between a linux and a windows

I have rebooted the system and now when I try to run a fresh install using
ipa-system-install --uninstall followed by ipa-system-install I get the following error:

Done configuring directory server (dirsrv).
Configuring certificate server (pki-tomcatd): Estimated time 3 minutes 30 seconds
  [1/22]: creating certificate server user
  [2/22]: configuring certificate server instance
ipa         : CRITICAL failed to configure ca instance Command '/usr/sbin/pkispawn -s CA -f /tmp/tmpMmhbtg' returned non-zero exit status 1
Configuration of CA failed

Can anyone suggest what is failing and how we can go about fixing this ?

I think you hit this before in the other mail thread and it was recommended to do:

pkidestroy -s CA -i pki-tomcat
rm -rf /var/log/pki/pki-tomcat
rm -rf /etc/sysconfig/pki-tomcat
rm -rf /etc/sysconfig/pki/tomcat/pki-tomcat
rm -rf /var/lib/pki/pki-tomcat
rm -rf /etc/pki/pki-tomcat
