I assume that this replica does not have a CA and we are only dealing with
service HTTPD and DIRSRV service certificates.

Isn't this rather a problem that the replica does not trust the master server
HTTPD certificate because it's certificates are not valid from replica POV?

If this is just a replica without PKI, I would suggest synchronizing the time
back with the master CA server and restarting all the services.

If the HTTPD service does not want to start, follow chapter "⁠25.2.2. Starting
IdM with Expired Certificates" in
and then try to resubmit the certificates so that they can be renewed on the
master. Do not forget to revert the above configuration changes when you are 

Also, what version of FreeIPA are you running?
