Ouch. This is really old.

I assume you can't do this because the original host is lost, right?

Promote is such a terrible word, I really wish I'd never used it.

Every IPA master is a equal, some are just more equal than others. The
key bit that distinguishes them is whether there is a CA installed. The
other bit has to do with CRL generation and renewal which in your
version can only be done on one host (neither of which apply to
--selfsign anyway).

If you installed originally using --selfsign and that initial host is
gone and you have no backups you're in for some trouble. It is a single
point of failure and the reason we no longer support it. The docs
contain a bit of warning about that.

You mention migrating. What new primary server?

So I'd start digging around to see if you have the original CA private
key somewhere. The end of the IPA server install would have recommending
backing up cacert.p12.
