To double check I ran through the process of requesting an http cert on a
new server, and indeed the Issuer CN is the same "CN=Certificate
Authority,O=DOMAIN.COM" (which makes sense from your answer). But when I
look at the http cert I just requested, the IPA CA cert 'Issued CN' field
is the old external CA.

To get my client cert I followed the process here:
One of the first steps is to pull the ipa ca's into the nssdb. I have 4
certs in that file now which builds the chain for old ext ca/old ipa ca,
new ext ca/new ipa ca. I don't think this has any impact on the cert
request process but it does show that both chains are in ipa.
