Yep that is correct, on one instance I can communicate on the other I
can't. Let's call them primary and secondary, the primary was the
original install from whence all the others came.

ipa cert-show 1 on primary works, fails on secondary.

Running certutil -L -d /etc/httpd/alias -n ipaCert | grep Serial on
primary renders this:

        Serial Number: 136 (0x88)
        Serial Number: 92 (0x5c)

Running against secondary gives only this:
        Serial Number: 92 (0x5c)

So it looks like that is probably the cause of all this mess, though
how the primary got two certs? I dunno.

Finally running the ldap query on both hosts confirms that 136 is the
serial for the cert in question, so it appears that this somehow got
messed up on the secondary.

Sooo, with all that known (and thank you for the help, I figured it
was something like this but reading the dogtag docs was taking me a
good long while to suss out the issue), how does one fix it?
