Great, I am glad to hear that. Note that we were investigating renewing
certificates and clones and found out an issue in Python readline that
prevented a renewal of the IPA agent certificate:

https://fedorahosted.org/freeipa/ticket/4064

Could this be the reason of your issues? Did you saw a crash of certmonger
during the renewal? It was found out to be happening due to the
aforementioned bug.

Thanks,
Martin
