Replying to myself here, and narrowing this down a bit further this
seems to be a straight auth problem against my secondary ipa server.
All command work against the primary, all certificate commands against
the secondary fail.

It appears to be confined to dogtag (other commands like ipa user-show
work), but how exactly dogtag handles auth I am not clear on. It
appears as though mod_auth_kerb handles most things and that is
definitely working. However any access against dogtag components is
failing, so dogtag must/should/may be handling auth internally in a
way that is failing.

Anyway, suggestions are still welcome,
