I was told the GoDaddy certs were just imported using certutil -a but in 
looking at the certs the original certs were actually replaced. This is only in 
Certificate Nickname                                         Trust Attributes   
GD_CA                                                        CT,C,CNWF_GD       

The certs in /etc/dirsrv/slapd-PKI-CA are still the originals:
[root@ipa2-corp ~]# certutil -L -d /etc/dirsrv/slapd-PKI-IPA/
Certificate Nickname                                         Trust Attributes   
IPADOMAIN.COM IPA CA                                      CT,C,Server-Cert      
 I am not even sure how this even works or if it can be fixed? Should/Can we go 
back to using the original dogtag certs?

Good afternoon, we have a freeipa 3.0.42 installation running on redhead 6.6 
with a mix of rhel 5, rhel6 and Solaris clients. It was originally configured 
with the built in dogtag certificate CA and then one of my co-workers added our 
GoDaddy certificate to the certificate bundle. My understanding is this cert is 
used for communication between the ipa servers as well as the clients are also 
configured to trust the GoDaddy certificate. We recently had to get a new 
GoDaddy cert so our old one is revoked. I need to figure out how to either 
replace the existing revoked cert with the new one or add the new one to the 
bundle and then remove the revoked certificate so as not to break anything.  
Any help is appreciated. I am not strong with certificates so the more detail 
you can give the better.Thank you.

You say it was running with the self signed IPA CA and than GoDaddy cert was 
added to the bundle. How was it added?
IPA does not use certs for communication between the instances. It uses 
Kerberos. I am not sure the DoDaddy cert you added is even used in some way by 
It seems that your GoDaddy cert is an orthogonal trust so if you replaced the 
main key pair then you just need to distribute your new GoDaddy cert to the 
clients as you did on the first place.
