Is there a way to force the script to check and remove everything?

Or somewhere there is a lock file or something that needs removing?



can you please send a full output of `ipa-server-install --uninstall`
and then the `ipa-server-install` command? (and freeipa-server package
version) There was a that could case this behavior.

Anyway, the installer files you are looking for are there:
/var/lib/ipa/sysrestore/          # server backup files
/var/lib/ipa-client/sysrestore/   # client backup files

If you remove then, the installation will continue. However, I wouldn't
recommend removing them manually as ipa-[server|client]-install
--uninstall won't be able to return the machine to it's original
configuration then. I would rather suggest using the server/client
uninstaller again.
