e.g. master with CA and ldap all crashed with replication servers but data aslo crashed...can it be use as restore using the same hostname   and rebuild the replication agreements with others?


yes, the doc explains how to restore in a multi-master environment:

    you can find the doc for 4.5 in

    The full backup of a master with CA also contains the certs and the CA.


        is it possible to use very old vm image plus the regular ldif
        backup recovery?

             If you have a full backup of a master with a CA and have
        saved it
             off-machine and your machine dies then you can re-install
        using the
             EXACT SAME OPTIONS.

             Then restore the backup. Then re-initialize all other
        masters (this
             should all be documented already).

             If you have only one master with a CA and it dies and you
        have no
             backups then you are pretty much hosed at the moment.

             IPA is so much more than just an LDIF.

             _Could_ you use an LDIF to restore the data minus the
        certs? Yeah,
             probably, with a whole ton of work and expertise. Would it
        be worth the
             trouble and would you ever fully trust that you got it 100%

             The best solution is to maintain multiple masters and > 1
        CA. If one
             dies then you delete it and provision a new master. You can
        maintain the
             old name if you want.

             Or if you use VMs you can use disk snapshots to maintain
