3.12. Uninstalling a FreeIPA Client

For Fedora clients, the ipa-client-install utility can be used to uninstall the client and remove it from the FreeIPA domain. To remove the client, use the --uninstall option.
# ipa-client-install --uninstall


There is an uninstall option with the ipa-join command. This is called by ipa-client-install --uninstall as part of the uninstallation process. However, while the ipa-join option removes the client from the domain, it does not actually uninstall the client or properly remove all of the FreeIPA-related configuration. Do not run ipa-join -u to attempt to uninstall the FreeIPA client. The only way to uninstall a client completely is to use ipa-client-install --uninstall.
