Thanks! Does it have to be an IPA server with CA? What if it doesn't
have CA component - will it forward the request to one of the IPA
servers with CA?
It has to be CA component server. That's why we have ipa-ca --
it is an
entry that is managed to have only IP addresses of CA servers.
Technically, something else could front it but there are other issues
with this approach.
In past we tried to use CNAME to point to CA master but it didn't work
for HTTP end-points.
