Description of problem:
Installed ipa client twice, the second time using -f. Uninstalled this client, and sssd.conf, krb5.conf, and ntp.conf were not restored.
After 2 installs, the original config files are not available, and uninstall doesn't restore correctly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install ipa client
2. Install again, this time using -f to reinstall over existing install
4. Check sssd.conf, ntp.conf and krb5.conf.
These files are not restored to its original as before the first install was done.
Files should be in the state as before any installs were made.
Verified using ipa-client-2.1.2-2.el6.x86_64
Cannot reinstall using -f anymore....indicates message:
IPA client is already configured on this system.
If you want to reinstall the IPA client, uninstall it first
After uninstalling, files are restored, with such an install.
Technical note added. If any revisions are required, please edit the "Technical Notes" field
accordingly. All revisions will be proofread by the Engineering Content Services team.
Cause: Uninstalling a client that was reinstalling the --force option results in some files not being restored.
Consequence: Uninstalling the client does not return it to its original state.
Fix: The --force option was able to re-install over an already installed system causing the original saved files to be lost.
Result: You can no longer re-install over an installed client with the --force option. You have to uninstall and re-install.
