Hi Sara, DNS does not influence ipa-client-install, if that command fails it means the host is registered in the ipa server as a member of the domain and the correct command to remove it should be ipa host-del.
The (Invalid credential) error is odd though. On what machine are you running ipa host-del and with what user credentials ? Simo.
