Chapter 24. 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
The -s option specifies the subsystem to be removed (such as CA, KRA, OCSP, TKS, or TPS). The -i option specifies the instance name, such as pki-tomcat.

Example 24.1. 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/

Uninstallation complete.
The pkidestroy utility 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.
