Hi Josh,

depending on your IPA version, you may consider using ipa-server-certinstall and ipa-certupdate.

ipa-server-certinstall can be used to install a new certificate for Apache/LDAP servers, and ipa-certupdate to update the NSS DBs with the CA certificates found in the LDAP server.

It would be nice to have an IPA tool  to update all certificates in all
required places.

Also, why would I need to add CA that already in system ca-trust to the
private IPA nssdb?

It depends on whether you kept the original CSR or not. If you kept
the original CSR and are just renewing the certificate(s) then when
you get the new one, use certutil to add the updated cert to the
appropriate NSS database like:

# certutil -A -n Server-Cert -d /etc/httpd/alias -t u,u,u -a -i

If you need to generate a new CSR then you can use
ipa-server-certinstall to install the updated key and crt files.

In either case probably worth backing up /etc/httpd/alias/*.db and
