Every server in IPA is a master, the only distinction being whether it
has a CA installed or not, and to a lesser extend DNS (all masters have
the data, some may just not run the service).

So if you have a master with a CA then you have a full IPA master.

The only thing that distinguishes one master from another is due to
order of installation due to two things that should only be done on one
master: generate the CRL and handle CA subsysutem certificate renewal.

The first IPA master installed is given these duties. To switch the CRL
generator use the first link.

The page is going to be updated soon to reflect how renewal should be
handled on 4.0+ servers. The renewal master is now stored in LDAP so
switching it is a lot easier.
