Unless I am way off here - what I need to do is set the replica to NOT
be DNS, but then standup another replica inside the same "location" with
DNS and make sure the hosts in that location talk to it, and in the
inside location, they talk to the other host. The point is, and I think
this is what I missed,, not ALL replicas have to have DNS setup. And
that resolves the problem with the 2 talking that are connected across
Please tell me I am on the right path?

I think I see the problem - I am really trying to do Split DNS in
configuration. So I need to keep DNS working, but somehow there must
be a way to have the replica on the outside of the firewall understand
that there is split DNS involved. I am having an issue figuring out if
FreeIPA DNS can do that? Any pointers to some docs?
