Glad you've figured it out.

In general, there must be different certs on a replica because the
hostname is different.  IPA does not do the work to figure out that
the wildcard cert on the master will be valid for the replica too
and therefore use it for the replica services - and it almost
certainly never will (wildcard certs are deprecated).

But, during ipa-replica-intsall(1) you can provide certificates for
the Directory Server and Apache HTTPD via the --dirsrv-cert-file and
--http-cert-file options.  This way you can give the replica the
wildcard certs from the start, and it will not issue certs from the
IPA CA for these services.  This would have achieved the desired
