Okay, took a gamble and copied the old passwd.txt file back in on
"secondary". No change. Then copied the old key3.db file back in and ... it
started! Haven't copied secmod.db back into place. Should I? I guess I should have
only copied the cert8.db file over?
I wouldn't recommend manually copying anything between servers except as
a last resort.
These certificates should be tracked and kept in sync by certmonger
One of your servers should be configured as the "renewal master". You
can find out which one with:
# ipa config-show | grep renewal
IPA CA renewal master: ipa.example.test
That is the CA that does the actual renewals of expiring certificates.
The other servers get the updated certificates from this one.
So make sure that the most recent "renewed" certificate was done on the
renewal master by certmonger otherwise it won't be distributed properly.
How you have two valid certificates at the same time I don't know.
So I'd recommend trying to figure out what happened so we can prevent
future problems and get things back in sync in the best and safest way.
