[Freeipa-users] Difference between Masters and Replicas?

I'd like some clarification on what a "master" and "replica" is please.

This doc suggests you start with 1 master and a replica can be promoted to a master by changing "/var/lib/pki-ca/conf/CS.cfg":

However IPA is supposed to be multi-master replication, and replication agreements appears to be two ways when checking "ipa-replica-manage list hostname" on a given IPA server.

So when creating a replica using:

ipa-replica-install --setup-ca --setup-dns --forwarder= --forwarder= /root/replica-info-ipa01.domain.com.gpg

am I creating another "master replica"?
