Hello Natxo,

During migration, certificates are not touched. This is a bug/deficiency in
FreeIPA in RHEL-6.x, it uses the issuing FreeIPA hostname as the CRL/OCSP 

This should be fully fixed in FreeIPA 3.2 or later, see upstream ticket (and
linked design page):

In the RHEL-7 versions, certificates should be pointing to the joint name
"ipa-ca.DOMAIN" pointing to FreeIPA servers with CA.

What you can do now is to either keep the "A" record as you already have, or
alternatively you can re-issue certificates ("ipa-getcert resubmit") that are
pointing to the RHEL-6 machine.
