I could not get anywhere even after manually patching the python script as 
mentioned in the ticket
you provided.

I ended up removing and re-adding the replica during a maintenance window. For 
future reference,
what I did was to remove the replica as per the Identity Management Guide on 
docs.redhat.com. I
then re-created the replica installation file and installed the replica.

At this point Certmonger managed to retrieve new certificates for the expired 
certificates, but it
kept segfaulting when it attempted to save the certificate to disk. I restarted 
certmonger a few
times, but certmonger just ended up segfaulting over and over. I decided to 
block the ipa server
off the network and change the date back to before the certs expired. After the 
date was changed I
restarted certmonger. Certmonger managed to save the certs successfully this 
time and a "getcert
list" now displays only certificates with an expire date of 2015 or 2016 and a 
status of

I changed the date back to correct date and time and removed the iptables 
rules. The replica now
works just fine.

Thank you for your assistance.
