I began installing a new ipa4 replica this morning and it all went

the replica from our master, I deleted the host from there too, I
un-installed ipa-server on the new replica machine, I even created a
new replica-prepare script on the master, but now the server just
errors immediately with:

I've verified several times, that no replica, or host with the same
name exists in the master, there are no ldap entries under masters,
with that hostname, nothing. There is literally no trace of the new
host, on the old master. Running `ipa-replica-manage list` shows just
the 3 ipa servers we have already, no sign of this new host. Yet, if I
run `ipa-replica-manage del hostname --force` on the master, it will
in fact say that it's forcing removal, skipping checking if anything
will be orphaned and that no RUV records were found.
I'm now lost, I really don't know where to start with fixing this.

Not sure if this is relevant or not, but I'd rather bring it up and it
not be, than not mention it and it turn out to be the reason. Our yum
mirror is unfortunately now holding rhel7.2 packages, whilst our
servers, are still on rhel7.1, which means our existing IPA servers,
are ipa4.1 and the new one I tried to install, was ipa4.2, but on a
rhel7.1 box. I had previously attributed the failed systemctl command,
to the fact that I was trying to run ipa4.2 on a rhel7.1 box, as I'm
told there were a lot of modifications to systemctl in rhel7.2, but I
need to fix this replication agreement issue, before I can try again
with the box upgraded to rhel7.2.
