Epilogue:

While I couldn't solve the python error, I did manage to uninstall the ipa 
client and sssd components, then delete /var/lib/ipa-client (which was causing 
the ipa-client-install program to think that it was already registered). After 
reinstalling the ipa client and sssd components, ipa-client-install happily 
bound the system to the IPA cluster.

Best regards,
Dan

Subject: [Freeipa-users] CentOS 6.8: uninstalling IPA client causes python error

We're rebinding clients from IPA 3 to IPA 4 and two CentOS 6.8 servers are 
giving us grief. When we try to run the uninstall program via 
"ipa-client-install --uninstall", we get:

[root@localhost ~]# ipa-client-install --uninstall -U -f
Disabling client Kerberos and LDAP configurations
Unconfiguring the NIS domain.
Redundant SSSD configuration file /etc/sssd/sssd.conf was moved to 
/etc/sssd/sssd.conf.deleted
Restoring client configuration files
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/ipa-client-install", line 2567, in <module>
    sys.exit(main())
  File "/usr/sbin/ipa-client-install", line 2544, in main
    return uninstall(options, env)
  File "/usr/sbin/ipa-client-install", line 637, in uninstall
    fstore.restore_all_files()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/ipapython/sysrestore.py", line 222, in 
restore_all_files
    shutil.copy(backup_path, path)  # SELinux needs copy
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/shutil.py", line 84, in copy
    copyfile(src, dst)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/shutil.py", line 51, in copyfile
    with open(dst, 'wb') as fdst:
IOError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/etc/ssh/sshd_config'

The /etc/ssh/sshd_config file seems to have proper permissions (as do the other 
files), so we're a little stumped why it fails here.

Thanks,
Dan
