so initially the setup waswith ipa-server-03 having replication to 
ipa-server-02i have then decomissioned ipa-server-03 and setup a new one with 
the same name.right now replication is between ipa-server-03 and ipa-server-01 
but i would want to add anotherreplication agreement 02 and 03 same as before 
but am getting the error message.
All systems are centos 7 so I'd expect freeipa to be the latest version.

This is an IPA 3.0 error message from ticket

What do you mean you removed it and setup an identical one? Did you do 
this with ipa-replica-install?

ipa-replica-manage is looking up the masters and it doesn't consider 
replica a master which is why it is throwing this error. I'd 
double-check that replication is working properly.

On each master run: ipa-replica-manage list -v `hostname`

And really, ipa-replica-manage list should show a list of all known masters.
