However I have both my IPA CA and third party CA, where IPA CA is self

That's correct (or use `ipa-server-certinstall` to do the same thing).
I have installed FreeIPA Server with default CA Provided by IPA
(Self-Signed). Later I have installed my Third Party SSL On top of it. Now
my SSL is going to expire next month. So is ''certutil -A" needed for the
new certificate to get used by IPA?
Yes, you need to put the new certificate in the application's NSSDB,
then restart the application (httpd and/or dirsrv) so that it is
using the new certificate. Clients will already trust the Digicert
CA so no other action should be required.
Thanks and Regards,
