Chapter 23. Removing a Subsystem
Removing a subsystem requires specifying the subsystem type and the name of the server in which the subsystem is running. This command removes all files associated with the subsystem (without removing the subsystem packages).
pkidestroy -s subsystem_type -i instance_name
-soption specifies the subsystem to be removed (such as CA, KRA, OCSP, TKS, or TPS). The
-ioption specifies the instance name, such as
Example 23.1. Removing a CA Subsystem
$ pkidestroy -s CA -i pki-tomcat Loading deployment configuration from /var/lib/pki/pki-tomcat/ca/registry/ca/deployment.cfg. Uninstalling CA from /var/lib/pki/pki-tomcat. Removed symlink /etc/systemd/system/multi-user.target.wants/pki-tomcatd.target. Uninstallation complete.
pkidestroyutility removes the subsystem and any related files, such as the certificate databases, certificates, keys, and associated users. It does not uninstall the subsystem packages. If the subsystem is the last subsystem on the server instance, the server instance is removed as well.
