Details, need details. What does decommissioned mean? What commands did you run?

How were the current agreements created? ipa-replica-manage, automatically when one was created as a replica of another?

All systems are centos 7 so I'd expect freeipa to be the latest version.

Latest doesn't mean anything, especially if someone finds this thread in the future.

rpm -q ipa-server

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.
