It is important to understand that CA is crucial to IPA so if for some
reason you loose all the replicas that have CA you are facing a
redeployment.
This is why we suggest having "enough" replicas with CA and also to do
periodically snapshot one of the replicas with CA so that everything is
lost you can recover from the snapshot.
We are working on a more comprehensive disaster recovery document but it
is worth mentioning it here.
