Our freeipa certificates need to be renewed due to passing their expiry
While some certificates have renewed ok, the ipaCert and
auditSigningCert are renewing but the new certificates have the wrong
serverA (CRL, first, master) RHEL 7.3, ipa 4.4
serverB (replica) RHEL 7.3, ipa 4.4
serverC (replica) RHEL 7.4, ipa 4.5
Once there are renewed certificates with the wrong Subject present,
there are various problems with renewing the remaining certificates,
which I think might be related to the bad Subject:
1) When just ipaCert has the wrong subject no further renewals happen
2) When auditSigningCert has the wrong subject the ipa pki-tomcatd
service will not start and no further renewals happen.
I've been round the following loop many times on ServerA, our first master:
1) Restore good certificates from backup
2) Put the clock back to a time when certificates are all valid
3) Resubmit certificates for renewal
Each time the ipaCert renews it has the same wrong Subject. The wrong
Subject includes the host name of one of our ipa client systems.
Each time the auditSigningCert renews it has the same wrong Subject but
a different subject to the ipaCert. The wrong Subject in this case
includes the host name of a system which has never been an ipa client,
but might have been added and removed with ipa host-add and ipa host-del
for testing something, a while ago.
As far as I can see, the "cert_subject" is set correctly in the file
/var/lib/certmonger/<request id> until the point at which the
certificate is actually renewed.
I'd be very grateful for some pointers as to which configuration options
and logs to check through to resolve this problem on our production system.
If its of any relevance we did change which server is the first master
some time ago.
