Hi guys,
I'm running freeipa-server-2.1.4-5.fc16.x86_64.

Following the documentation I can see that to uninstall and reinstall a
freeipa system it is sufficient to:

 > ipa-server-install <parameters>
 > ipa-server-install --uninstall
 > ipa-server-install <parameters>

Well, when re-installing the system, I get this error on the console:
done configuring named.
Configuration of client side components failed!
ipa-client-install returned: Command '/usr/sbin/ipa-client-install
--on-master --unattended --domain
<> --server
<http://UNIX.MYDOMAIN.IT> --hostname

I had a look to /var/log/ipaclient-install.log and I saw these lines

So I tried a new "ipa-server-install --uninstall" and checked the file
/etc/ipa/ca.crt. And it remained there.
What is the problem?

The problem isn't the existence of the file, it is the existence of the cert in /etc/pki/nssdb. Try running: certutil -D -n 'IPA CA' -d /etc/pki/nsdb

Re-install should succeed then.
