Without a backup of the data on Master, it wouldn't mess anything up, it just wouldn't help much. It would be a new installation that hasn't been setup for use yet. That gets you nowhere, really.

I'm curious as to how/why this was setup this way. And why the master was uninstalled if the organization was still using IPA for authentication.

FWIW, if I were in your position, I'd hobble along on the replica while I spend the time and effort building an entirely new IPA infrastructure. And certainly NOT in a virtualbox VM on a linux server. It would be better in the long run rather than trying to mend this broken system and have to fight it constantly afterwards.
