Disregard the above. It turns out that the issue I was experiencing wasn't directly FreeIPA's fault. Instead it was because the interface name change during upgrade changed the DHCP-assigned address of the machine and FreeIPA pretty much relies on the IP not changing. The failure I experienced can be fixed by manually changing the IP address back to what it should have been and rerunning the ipa-server-upgrade script. This should not be an issue on machines with a static IP or ones whose DHCP assignment is based on MAC address.
