can you provide the logs of the replica installation (/var/log/ipareplica-install.log and /var/log/pki/pki-ca-spawn.$date.log) ?
In the logs you can find which server was used to initialize the data (look for a line with ipa-replica-conncheck), the logs from this server may also be useful (/var/log/httpd/error_log).

Hey there

Using freeipa on centos (ipa-server-4.6.8-5.el7.centos.6.x86_64) we fail to add an additional replica, but only when enabling CA services (option "--setup-ca").
We use the following command to stage a new replica (and have in the past):

> ipa-replica-install --principal admin --admin-password ${adminpw} --setup-dns --no-dnssec-validation --no-forwarder --setup-ca --domain lxusp.local --server [master-idm-node]

which we have used to stage the previous replicas too.
Log (/var/log/ipareplica-install.log) shows that its stuck in state

> DEBUG certmonger request is in state dbus.String(u'SUBMITTING', variant_level=1)

Repeated until then aborted by a timeout message (and non-functional replica).

Since there are only outdated reports (>2 years old) about slightly similar (but not matching!) behavior like https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1623113 we kindly ask if anyone can help here.
