Doc Text:
Cause: Unconfiguring the IPA client on a running IPA server will effectively break the server by removing required configuration such as /etc/krb5.conf. Consequence: The IPA server would be left in a non-working state. Fix: The client uninstaller now detects the installation state of an installed server. Result: Attempting to uninstall the client on a server will result in an error message. The client will be uninstalled when/if the server is uninstalled.
