[RFE] ipa-client-install: need an option to completely remove client from idm server.
Last modified: 2018-06-19 09:30:49 EDT
Description of problem:
We can see in documentation:
" The only way to uninstall a client completely is to use ipa-client-install --uninstall. "
It could be interesting, at uninstall, to have an option to do the exact symetric operation than ipa-client-install.
Today, the ipa-client-install command creates entries on server.
And the --uninstall is not deleting them. We need to do
ipa host-del <client machine>
to invert the client install. An option "--clean-all" or "--server-clean" could delete also host entry + dns entry if possible ?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Summary of internal discussion
So can we summarize and agree that:
a) It is a good idea to have an option to clean DNS record on the host-del
b) Since there are already expectations about system behavior this
option would not be enabled by default.
It is more related to bug 1301586, but here the context is that cleanup should not be a default behavior.
