I normally deploy through foreman and we have ipa integrated, so I
haven't used it in a while.

When I use username "root" and set the password, how do I add another
normal user then?

Say I want to add an user account & set the root password. When I fill
in the username & password there is no way to login to the system as
this user and gain root access in any way (sudo is not allowed).

So it could have just remained rootpw as the vm is worthless otherwise
or am I missing something?
