It's a little bit more clear. Thanks.

I have created a new ipa 4.1 replica but when I want run :

# ipa-cacert-manage renew --self-signed

I've got this message :

[root@ipa-devel-centos7 ~]# ipa-cacert-manage renew --self-signed
CA is not configured on this system

If I want to install the CA I've got this message :

[root@ipa-devel-centos7 system]# ipa-ca-install --password=mypassorwd -U
CA is already installed.

Should I have to promote the replica to a standalone master before
installing the CA ?

Any hints will be appreciated...
