So unfortunately a rebuild would be less than optimal for me, lots of servers 
and users.  So I've tried Dmitri's idea of ldapi and I got the access to LDAP 
now, however I may be going about this entire thing wrong.   I created an LDIF 
file that looks like this: 

dn: cn=cacert,cn=ipa,cn=etc,dc=example,dc=com
        changetype: modify
        replace: cacert
        cacert:  NEWKEY_ksljdfkljadfkljalksdjfaBLAHBLAH

Then I ran the following: 

ldapmodify -x -H ldapi://%2fvar%2frun%2fslapd-EXAMPLE-COM.socket -D 
"cn=Directory Manager" -W -f /root/change-settings.ldif

and I get the following error: 

Enter LDAP Password:
modifying entry "cn=cacert,cn=ipa,cn=etc,dc=digitalreasoning,dc=com"
ldap_modify: Object class violation (65)
        additional info: attribute "cacert" not allowed

Anyone have any ideas?
