RHEL Engineering is moving the tracking of its product development work on RHEL 6 through RHEL 9 to Red Hat Jira (issues.redhat.com). If you're a Red Hat customer, please continue to file support cases via the Red Hat customer portal. If you're not, please head to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs in the statuses "NEW", "ASSIGNED", and "POST" are being migrated throughout September 2023. Bugs of Red Hat partners with an assigned Engineering Partner Manager (EPM) are migrated in late September as per pre-agreed dates. Bugs against components "kernel", "kernel-rt", and "kpatch" are only migrated if still in "NEW" or "ASSIGNED". If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at rh-issues@redhat.com to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "https://issues.redhat.com/browse/RHEL-XXXX", where "X" is a digit). This same link will be available in a blue banner at the top of the page informing you that that bug has been migrated.

Description Sudhir Menon 2017-04-11 05:49:26 UTC
Description of problem: Need to remove certain files in /var/run/ipa directory after uninstalling ipa-server

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

How reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install IPA server, establish trust with win2k16 AD
2. Ensure trust is established and now delete the trust
3. Now Uninstall IPA server .

#ipa-server-install --uninstall -U

Actual results:
ipa-server is uninstalled successfully without any issues, but there are certain files which are left over in /var/run/ipa directory

[root@master ipa]# pwd

-rw-------. 1 root   root   2924 Apr 10 06:17 krb5cc_oddjob_trusts
-rw-------. 1 root   root   2819 Apr 10 06:17 krb5cc_oddjob_trusts_fetch

[root@master ccaches]# ls -l
total 20
-rw-------. 1 ipaapi ipaapi 6364 Apr 11 01:13 
-rw-------. 1 ipaapi ipaapi 2262 Apr 11 01:13 host~client.testrelm.test
-rw-------. 1 ipaapi ipaapi 4198 Apr 10 04:08 host~master.testrelm.test

Expected results: Unless and until these files are important for the system, they should be removed after ipa-server uninstall.

Additional info: Logging this as a bug to have a clean uninstall

Thank you taking your time and submitting this request for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. Unfortunately, this bug cannot be kept even as a stretch goal and was postponed to RHEL8.

Comment 7 Petr Čech 2020-11-30 14:15:01 UTC
This BZ has been evaluated multiple times over the last several years and we assessed that it is a valuable request to keep in the backlog and address it at some point in future. Time showed that we did not have such capacity, nor have it now nor will have in the foreseeable future. In such a situation keeping it in the backlog is misleading and setting the wrong expectation that we will be able to address it. Unfortunately we will not. To reflect this we are closing this BZ. If you disagree with the decision please reopen or open a new support case and create a new BZ. However this does not guarantee that the request will not be closed during the triage as we are currently applying much more rigor to what we actually can accomplish in the foreseeable future. Contributions and collaboration in the upstream community and CentOS Stream is always welcome!
Thank you for understanding
