Seems the un-install option for ipa-server hangs at un-configuring/stopping the 
web server every time....the result is the master thinks it has a replication 
agreement but the replica doesnt......its then not possible to re-add the 
replica to the master....its starts to work but fails when it tries to sync the 
data...that bit doesnt seem to occur..

Now the assumption seems to be the dirsrv on the server being removed is 
running...in effect you can only un-install if the system is working...which 
isnt why you want to --uninstall. DSo if you lose a server and it has no dirsrv 
you cannot remove it from the master's "memory" so a bare metal restore cannot 
be added....

Simple solution there needs to be a script or procedure that cleans the master
