Is this the only place where IPA' CA cert resides?
I thought that that cert will be in /etc/dirsrv/slapd-MY-DOMAIN
$ certutil -d /etc/dirsrv/slapd-MY.. 
gets me:
MY-DOMAIN IPA CA        CT,C,C
Server-Cert             u,u,u
what is that IPA CA then?
I also see the same with:
$ certutil -d /etc/httpd/alias -L
Is this the same one certificate? (including /etc/ipa/ca.crt)
I get these with: ipa-getcert list
I'm guessing these are set up by installer and to be managed by
certmonger, for DS and web server for certificates auto management
purposes?
many thanks.
