Thanks a lot. It's deleted now!
The .jar thing (i.e. jss4.jar, osutil.jar, and symkey.jar) was pointing
to /usr/lib/..., but when I was struggling, I read on the web there was
a post saying they should point to /usr/lib64/..., so I changed them.
The weird thing is I THINK they were pointing to existing files, but now
they are not.
So I changed the links one more times to make them pointing to
/usr/lib/..., restarted ipa, and host-del worked.
Thanks again, guys.

Glad it's working. Obviously we would like to know how you got into this situation and perhaps open a bug. But unfortunately since you've manually changed links it's hard to know if the logic used to update an existing system is robust or not. I recall when the issue of where to locate native jars on 64bit came up there was a fair amount of back and forth over where things would be installed and which links to introduce. Unfortunately I do not recall the final resolution, it might be that the tomcat instances were supposed to continue to point to /usr/lib/java and links would be set up there to point to the 64bit version. In any event I don't think we can file a bug at this point, but perhaps we need to pay attention and see if anyone else gets bitten by this.

    Let's verify the link to the jss4.jar is in place. Note this is an
    x86_64 system, Mathew did make some adjustments to where native
    (i.e. arch specific) jars are located. I think it moved from
    /usr/lib/java to /usr/lib64/java. pki-create would have been
    modified to set up links to them on a new install but it's possible
    the links weren't updated on an existing install. Not sure, guessing
    at the moment but I think it's worth pursuing.

    Please do this, it will list all the jars which should be visible to
    the CA tomcat instance, the jss4.jar should have a link under

    sudo ls -l /var/lib/pki-ca/common/lib

    We want to verify none of the symbolic links listed above are
    dangling (point to a non-existent file). Pay particular attention to
    /var/lib/pki-ca/common/lib/jss4.jar, does it point to an existing
    file that's a valid jar? If not can you locate jss4.jar? Is it now
    under /var/lib64/java? If so adjust the symbolic link under
    /var/lib/pki-ca/common/lib to point to it. Do thinks work now after
