Seems the un-install option for ipa-server hangs at un-configuring/stopping the

Can you investigate where it hangs? What is the last bit in the log? Is it that /sbin/service isn't returning? strace might be helpful.

Now the assumption seems to be the dirsrv on the server being removed is 
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....

If a box goes away then you can remove references on the master it connected with using:

ipa-replica-manage del <replica-now-gone> --force
ipa host-del <replica-now-gone>

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

The solution is to figure out why your server is hanging. Nobody has ever reported seeing this before.
