#5681 Residual Files After IPA Server Uninstall
Closed: Fixed None Opened 5 years ago by pvoborni.

Ticket was cloned from Red Hat Bugzilla (product Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7): Bug 1304618

Description of problem:
Decommissioning a system as the IPA Server(IdM) using `ipa-server-install
--uninstall` and/or `ipa-server-install --uninstall -U` leaves residual IPA/IdM
related files on system; e.g. during the installation, I presume the
httpd.service file is copied into /etc/systemd/system/httpd.service and
modified to suit the needs of the IPA server instance.  This is evident in bug
1044994.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

ipa-server-4.2.0-15.el7_2.3.x86_64

How reproducible:

Assuming user executes uninstall script as referenced in first line the
`/etc/systemd/system/httpd.service` file is left in place with residual,
irrelevant environment variables/links, rendering the Apache web server unable
to start.

~~~
# cat /etc/systemd/system/httpd.service
.include /usr/lib/systemd/system/httpd.service

[Service]
Environment=KRB5CCNAME=/var/run/httpd/ipa/krbcache/krb5ccache
Environment=KDCPROXY_CONFIG=/etc/ipa/kdcproxy/kdcproxy.conf
ExecStartPre=/usr/libexec/ipa/ipa-httpd-kdcproxy
ExecStopPost=-/usr/bin/kdestroy -A
~~~

Actual results:

~~~
