Folks, Juggling a problem here that perhaps doesn't have a perfect solution. I'm looking at systems that get re-provisioned by a Satellite/Spacewalk/Installation method. For full (Free)IPA integration, we normally delete the old entry from IPA, create a new one from scratch and set the OTP to match what we put in our post-install script called by the kickstart file.
Just noticed that I can do the same thing by Unprovisioning the system via the WebUI and then setting the OTP. Is there a way to Unprovision a registered host and set a OTP via the command line? I was looking at 'ipa host-mod --setattr' but not getting too far with the Unprovisioning aspect.
