We had problems with one idm replica complaining about different ldap database 
versions and at the same time errors on starting pki-tomcat. I decided to 
delete the ipa server and reinstall.
The ipa server delete went without problems, but the reinstall....

ipa-replica-install --setup-ca --setup-dns --forwarder 
--forwarder --principal admin --admin-password  "secret"

This fails on ca install, but without set-up ca the install was succesfull.
I tried both with the server enrolled as client and with the server not 
enrolled - no difference.
The installation was successful in a different envirionment but same software 

server is rhel 7.3, ipa: VERSION: 4.4.0, API_VERSION: 2.213

When ipa-replica-install fails  with -setup-ca  ipareplica-install.log shows :

Further observations:
During changing the certificate to thirdparty ssl, I got the following error in 
/var/log/httpd/error_log :
[Mon Apr 24 09:03:14.267871 2017] [:error] [pid 11004] Unable to verify 
certificate 'Server-Cert'. Add "NSSEnforceValidCerts off" to nss.conf so the 
server can start until the problem can be resolved.
p11-kit: couldn't open and map file: /etc/pki/ca-trust/source/ipa.p11-kit: 
Permission denied

I changed the permission on /etc/pki/ca-trust/source/ipa.p11-kit from 600 to 
644 and added "NSSEnforceValidCerts off" to /etc/httpd/conf.d/nss.conf
After that ipa-certupdate succeeded.

Are there any way to install the ca without reinstalling the whole ipa-server
