I had these messages too, and also failed to get it running with
ipa-replicate-manage.  But later I realiazed that the failing replica
was a CA replica, and using ipa-careplica-manage I could reinitialize
the replica.

I found it also mildly confusing, which server was ok and which server
needed the replica reinitialized. Could we add a hint to the log what
the admin needs to do?  Something like:

,----
|  Data required to update replica has been purged from the
|  changelog. The replica <hostname> must be reinitialized.
|  Use "ipa-(ca)?replica-manage ... --from <hostname>" on "<host>".
