Assigning this to Andrew since he normally has RHELOSP-Installer deployments handy (for testing). Although it looks like Kambiz Aghaiepour <kambiz@redhat.com> might be able to provide more info on this.

I had a think about this and the method shown in comment #1 might not work in all cases. The piped commands (rpm -qa --last | grep "Thu 17 Jul" | awk '{ print $1 }') will only show a list of when these packages were last updated. This means if you perform an update, the dates will change for some (but not all) packages.

I did some research and probably the best method for this is to you the following paramater in /etc/yum.conf:


This will effectively nuke chosen packages and (if they're not required by anything else) their dependencies.

So basically we need to do the following:

1. Add clean_requirements_on_remove=1 to /etc/yum.conf

2. Run: yum remove rhel-osp-installer foreman foreman-proxy puppet (anything else foreman related? dhcp? bind?)

3. Delete the directories specified in comment #1

How does this sound to everyone?

rhel-osp-installer leaves a number of config files in /etc/httpd/conf.d that should be removed as well.

Article now includes removing httpd too. Article is also published now so this bug can be closed.
