Description of problem:
As an administrator, I would love to have an option which will ask me to take backup of IPA server before uninstallation (as uninstallation is NON-REVERSIBLE). I agree, I can take a backup before uninstalling but not necessarily remember to take backup before uninstall.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
No user prompt to take backup before uninstallation.
User prompt to take backup before uninstallation.
Per triage on Dec 6, IPA currently has similar warning in interactive mode. But it doesn't mention ipa-backup utility. This warning will be adjusted to mention it.
The new options won't be implemented.
As agreed, the warning message in the uninstaller was re-written to mention ipa-backup.
# ipa-server-install --uninstall
This is a NON REVERSIBLE operation and will delete all data and configuration!
It is highly recommended to take a backup of existing data and configuration using ipa-backup utility before proceeding.
IPA Version verified with :: ipa-server-4.5.0-13.el7.x86_64
Marking BZ as verified.
