The only way to get around it, because you are using the same domain name, is 
to use different browsers to visit each site. Firefox for sitea, chrome for 

It's got to do with the fact that the Parent certificate name (generated 
automatically during install) is the same on both and because the domain 
matches then firefox throws the ssl warning.

I have the same thing in my environments for production and dr where the domain 
name is the same in both.

Subject: [Freeipa-users] sec_error_reused_issuer_and_serial

Hi all,

Playing around with freeipa on Fedora 22 after installing I cannot access the 
UI. Firefox will tell "sec_error_reused_issuer_and_serial".

I allready have an Freeipa (Fedora 21 based) and somewhere there seems to be a 
conflict in the certificates. After using a different domain name all goes well.

I want to test and try a few things on a test Freeipa server using the same 
domain name. Deleting all certicates in Firefox or even trying a new and clean 
profile did not help. How can I avoid this conflict?
