Hello all,

For nearly 2 years I’ve been running a Freeipa 3 (currently 3.0.0-42)
environment. We've had 2 masters since the start.  Several replicas
have had problems that required me to remove them. I’ve removed them
all (except the very last one) by running  ‘ipa-server-install
--uninstall’  and then  ipa-replica-manage clean-ruv’. The latest
replica I tried to remove failed on both commands. On further
inspection I see all the previous replicas have orphaned entries in
the ldap db.  How do I remove all the entries? (I’ve listed the
entries below). Is this process safe (in what is currently a single
ipa server environment)? Note, I’ve seen the one of the necessary
LDIFs that can be ‘run’ to remove the entries -- I just don’t
understand how to run an ldif.
You're skipping the step of ipa-replica-manage del <master-to-remove>?
That should do most of this cleanup for you.
I did run 'ipa-replica-manage del <master-to-remove>'  for all these as well.

For the CA you use ipa-csreplica-manage. Unfortunately that utility
lacks the RUV commands.
On using the 'ipa-csreplica-manage' command to remove the CAs  - the
del option failed with
"Unable to delete replica noc3-prd.companyz.com: Can't contact LDAP server"
And failed with the same response for a couple other listed servers as well.

Yes, you would have to clean it manually.

-- and here is an example LDIF to remove the last record listed above -

dn: cn=replica,cn=o\3Dipaca,cn=mapping tree,cn=config
changetype: modify
replace: nsds5task
nsds5task: CLEANRUV97
That doesn't look right. It should look like:

dn: cn=clean 97,cn=cleanallruv,cn=tasks,cn=config
changetype: add
objectclass: top
objectclass: extensibleObject
replica-base-dn: dc=companyz,dc=com
replica-id: 97
cn: clean 97

Be careful which RUV you remove. You only want to remove those that are
no longer active.
Thanks for the additional spec on the LDIF, though I still don't
understand how to run this. Is there somewhere you can point me to
with example commands to run such LDIFs?
I figured out how to enter the ldif changes.


Thank you,
