The issue in that thread was resolved.  It was caused by invalid
encoding of the notAfter field.  I think OpenBSD uses LibreSSL in
their base system - and I guess it adheres more strictly to RFC 5280
than other implementations.

As for migrating to a new CA (or merely installing a newer
certificate for the original CA, with correct encoding), you can do
it via ipa-cacert-mangage(1).
