#5262 ipa-server-install --uninstall does not stop named-pkcs11.service and ipa-ods-exporter.socket
Closed: Fixed None Opened 6 years ago by pspacek.

ipaserver-install.log shows this:

2015-08-26T11:01:21Z DEBUG Starting external process
2015-08-26T11:01:21Z DEBUG args='/bin/systemctl' 'stop' 'named.service'

and this:

2015-08-26T11:01:23Z DEBUG Starting external process
2015-08-26T11:01:23Z DEBUG args='/bin/systemctl' 'stop' 'ipa-ods-exporter.service'

Here should be stopped named-pkcs11 instead of named

2015-08-26T11:01:21Z DEBUG args='/bin/systemctl' 'stop' 'named.service'

I haven't been able to reproduce this, feel free to reopen bug if you hit the issue again.

Steps to reproduce:

  • install IPA server without DNS
  • install DNS using ipa-server-dns
  • uninstall IPA server: this should stop the server but it does not do that
  • install IPA server again: - it blows up because old DNS server is still running

Issue caused by caching list services that have been started by ipactl (introduced 7f272a3)

ipactl is not aware of new services after ipa-dns-install, ipa-ca-install without ipactl restart/start

Workaround might be to add ipactl start at the end of ipa-dns-install, ipa-ca-install
