RHEL Engineering is moving the tracking of its product development work on RHEL 6 through RHEL 9 to Red Hat Jira ( If you're a Red Hat customer, please continue to file support cases via the Red Hat customer portal. If you're not, please head to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs in the statuses "NEW", "ASSIGNED", and "POST" are being migrated throughout September 2023. Bugs of Red Hat partners with an assigned Engineering Partner Manager (EPM) are migrated in late September as per pre-agreed dates. Bugs against components "kernel", "kernel-rt", and "kpatch" are only migrated if still in "NEW" or "ASSIGNED". If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "", where "X" is a digit). This same link will be available in a blue banner at the top of the page informing you that that bug has been migrated.

Description François Cami 2020-06-17 14:16:23 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1847997 +++

Description of problem:
EPN does not ship its default configuration ( /etc/ipa/epn.conf ) in the ipa-client-epn subpackage. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install ipa-client-epn
2. Look for /etc/ipa/epn.conf

Actual results:
No file.

Expected results:
Configuration file installed.

Additional info:
EPN will work fine without its configuration file ; since EPN ships a configuration file man page, the configuration file can be created from scratch by (creative) users. However, this is less than convenient.
