Hi Belmiro,

Novajoin is being actively maintained by Red Hat - and has been used
primarily as a way to bootstrap controllers and computes in a tripleo
deployment to IPA, so as to obtain certificates for TLS-Everywhere.

Most recently, though, we've decided to move to an ansible based
approach -- https://opendev.org/x/tripleo-ipa.  We have deprecated the
use of novajoin within the tripleo context accordingly.

It sounds, though, like you are using novajoin in the overcloud?

In any case, you can create issues on the launchpad page, or contact me
on irc (ade_lee, on #tripleo or #openstack-barbican or #freeipa) to
discuss issues further.  I'd be interested to know what your use case
