I was hoping to "migrate" from F20 to F21 using:

The migration procedure is only needed if you run FreeIPA server with PKI based on Dogtag (pki-ca package) 9. Do you? Is your Fedora 20 FreeIPA&PKI instance
functional? FreeIPA+Dogtag 9 is not supported since Fedora 18, so I was
surprised such setup worked in Fedora 20.

I don't use Dogtag 9.  I installed FreeIPA freshly on a F19 VM, then yum
upgraded to F20.  With the significant changes for Fedora.next, systemd-216,
and FreeIPA 4, I wanted to create a new "master" (amd retire the old) by
replicating the current F20 3.3.5 master to what would become an F21 4.1.2 master.

Ah, makes more sense then. The PKI error below gets more serious then - Fraser
and Endi, please help Anthony.

While I use the yum upgrade procedure often with great success on a number of
my other servers, it can be tricky and sometimes unreliablem leaving around
cruft that can interfere with proper operation. I'm one of those folks that's
waiting patiently for the FreeIPA-to-FreeIPA migration ;)

I am just afraid everyone is just waiting and no one is willing to invest in
this feature and code ;-) IIRC, the difficulty in implementing the migration
tool is mostly in handling Kerberos and certificate data, which are based on
data secret and unique to the original server.

You may be right here about everyone waiting. Unfortnuately for this case, I am not a programmer, but a mere sysadmin. However, I can do code/design digging to look at the situation from outside the box to see what I might be able to find.

Is the proper, recommended procedure to yum upgrade the F20 FreeIPA 3.3.5 VM
instance to F21 FreeIPA 4.1.2?

It should work, yes.

Even so, it seems like I should be able to create a 4.1.2 replica of a 3.3.5

Indeed. This looks like a bug :-(

Where the new F21 replica would become the new "master" from which I would
later create other F21 replica(s).

F20 master:  freeipa-server-3.3.5-1.fc20.x86_64
F21 replica: freeipa-server-4.1.2-1.fc21.x86_64

The first F21 replica installation fails when attempting to setup the CA and
I'm not sure where to go from here.  Any guidance is appreciated.  Thanks.

CCing Fraser and Endi from PKI team to advise.
