This is a NON REVERSIBLE operation and will delete all data and configuration!
Are you sure you want to continue with the uninstall procedure? [no]: yes
Shutting down all IPA services
Removing IPA client configuration

Steps to Reproduce:
Do you remember the sequence of events with this instance?
Did you install 2.0, upgrade to 2.1, uninstall and try to re-install?
Or did you start with 2.0, upgrade to another release of 2.0, then uninstall the instance, update to 2.1 and try to re-install??

Cleaning up upgrade state is fixed upstream in:

Cause: Upgrading IPA from 2.0.0-23
Consequence: The 389-ds configuration has been modified not to accept requests.
Fix: Make the upgrade process more robust so it always restores the 389-ds configuration. When upgrading we disable the 389-ds listeners so modifications are not done during this window. An error was causing this process to abort and the 389-ds configuration was not being restored.
Result: Upgrading IPA does not leave the system in an inconsistent state.
Started with ipa-server.x86_64 0:2.0.0-23.el6. Installed. kinited as admin, added a user.
Then did a yum update ipa-server to get ipa-server-2.1.3-8.el6.x86_64.
restarted service - ipactl restart
kinit'd as admin and also as the user added previously
added a new user
verified installing 2.0, upgrading to 2.1.3, uninstalling and re-installing
