Chapter 8. Uninstalling an IdM server
As an administrator, you can remove an Identity Management (IdM) server from the topology.
This procedure describes how you can uninstall an example server named
- Before uninstalling a server that serves as a certificate authority (CA), key recovery authority (KRA), or DNS server, make sure these services are running on another server in the domain.
Removing the last server that serves as a CA, KRA, or DNS server seriously disrupts the Identity Management (IdM) functionality.
On another server, enter the
ipa server-delcommand to delete
server.idm.example.comfrom the topology:
[root@another_server ~]# ipa server-del server.idm.example.com
server.idm.example.com, use the
[root@server ~]# ipa-server-install --uninstall ... Are you sure you want to continue with the uninstall procedure? [no]: yes
Make sure all name server (NS) DNS records pointing to
server.idm.example.comare deleted from your DNS zones. This applies regardless of whether you use integrated DNS managed by IdM or external DNS.
