Package: pki-server
Version: 10.3.5-5
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

I tried to install `freeipa-server` which is install the `pki-ca` and `pki-server` package.

During the `freeipa-server` installation (`ipa-server-install`) it tries to configure the
`pki-server` with the `/usr/sbin/pkispawn -s CA -f /tmp/tmpV2cMIf` command.

But the `freeipa-server` installation fails, because the CS.cfg file is missing from

But this file is already in the system just at `/usr/share/pki/ca/conf/CS.cfg` location.

The solution is add a symlink to `/var/lib/pki/pki-tomcat/ca/conf` from `/usr/share/pki/ca/conf`:

ln -s /usr/share/pki/ca/conf /var/lib/pki/pki-tomcat/ca/

Then the freeipa-server installation can go to the next step or the pkispawn can run successefuly.
