 This command can be used to install the certificate contained in \fICERTFILE\fR as an additional CA certificate to IPA.
+Important: this does not replace IPA CA but adds the provided certificate as a known CA. This is useful for instance when using ipa-server-certinstall to replace HTTP/LDAP certificates with third-party certificates signed by this additional CA.
 Please do not forget to run ipa-certupdate on the master, all the replicas and all the clients after this command in order to update IPA certificates databases.
