No, the clients don't directly talk to the CA.

You'd need to look in /var/log/ipaclient-install.log to see what KDC was found and we were trying to use. If you have SRV records for both but we try to contact the hidden master this will happen. You can try specifying the server on the command-line with --server but this will be hardcoding things and make it less flexible later.

I was not able to install replica witch CA on fedora 20,
Bug is already reported https://fedorahosted.org/pki/ticket/816

Guys from dogtag found a workaround

Does it work for you?

What server provides DNS capabilities to the clients?
Do you use IPA DNS or some other DNS?
Clients seem to not be able to see replica KDC and try to access hidden master but they can know about this master only via DNS.
