I've setup an initial FreeIPA instance on a CentOS 7 host.  The install went 
without a hitch.  I can login to the GUI with no problems.  However, I am not 
able to install the replica on another CentOS 7 host.  I get the following 
[root@ipa2 ~]# ipa-replica-install --setup-ca --setup-dns --no-forwarders

[ipa1.nrln.us] reports: Update failed! Status: [-1  - LDAP error: Can't contact

  [error] RuntimeError: Failed to start replicationYour system may be partly

ipa.ipapython.install.cli.install_tool(Replica): ERROR    Failed to start 

The error message is misleading. The two hosts sit on the same subnet.  All 
firewalls are off.  Selinux is disabled.  Here is an nmap port scan from the 
replica to the master:

[root@ipa2 ~]# nmap ipa1
