I've run into an interesting problem which may be old hat to all of
you. I was working to bring down my IPA master server and did it
improperly. It was a rookie mistake, but I'm willing to view it as an
exercise in recovering from a massive system failure.
The original master server is gone with no way of recovering and I have
managed to replace the server by promoting one of my replicas, but I
find myself in a situation where I cannot remove the original master
server from the LDAP directory. It is still seen as a master server and
the webUI will not let me delete the system from directory server. Is
there a process somewhere that will walk me through demoting the old
server so I can delete it from the directory and officially promote its
For reference, I followed the steps located at this link.
