ipa: ERROR: 'Certificate operation cannot be completed: Unable to communicate with CMS (403)

Solution Verified - Updated -


We have upgraded to RHEL-8.5 and the problem seems have changed.
Now the pki-tomcatd service continues running but we receive the following error when attempting to look at any certificates on the server, or try to delete a host with the "ipa" command line tool:
Certificate operation cannot be completed: Unable to communicate with CMS (403)'
We have tried downgrading java back down, but it behaves exactly the same way.
