Description

As discussed in gitter, the provision installer needs to create a CA which can then be installed by the user, or Arvados' won't work correctly: self-signed certificates are silently discarded by some libraries.

  • On the sls files, there’re commented letsencrypt.conf snippets entries, I think we could get rid of them if they aren’t used (following our own code style standards of not keeping commented out code).
  • Got some error when trying to start it with vagrant (as a new instance)

    arvados: The Arvados CA was not correctly installed. Although some components will work,
    arvados: others won't. Please verify that the CA cert file was installed correctly and
    arvados: retry running these tests.
The SSH command responded with a non-zero exit status. Vagrant
assumes that this means the command failed. The output for this command
should be in the log above. Please read the output to determine what
went wrong.
