Honestly, no, as there isn't any clearly documented way to do this ;)
is about as close as I've found. Current plan is to snapshot the VMs, then
destroy the older one (current renewal master), replace with a new image,
and install an IPA replica from the remaining server, using the same name as
the prior one (possibly by force). If that doesn't work, same approach with
extra steps to remove the old replica first.
Thanks for elaborating. In this scenario you MUST install the CA
role on the replica. But you need not promote it to renewal/CRL
master, as long as you configure/verify the master to be renewal/CRL
master after reinstalling it.
Incidentally, this is partly the result of not being able to upgrade
place: an attempted 4.6.3 to 4.6.4 upgrade on F27 currently fails when
verifying the CA audit signing cert lifetime, as in this particular
environment the IPA CA is signed by an external CA cert that expires in
2020. Is this bug-worthy?
It's investiation-worthy. Please provide the output of:
- certutil -d /etc/pki/pki-tomcat/alias -L
- certutil -d /etc/pki/pki-tomcat/alias -L -n 'auditSigningCert cert-pki-ca'
- getcert list
