I can't see any certificate in the master,

I want to uninstall puppet open source both from the master and agents.

How can I uninstall them completely?

Thank you

It depends on the version of Puppet you installed, and how you installed it.

Thanks Alex, wget sudo dpkg -i puppetlabs-release-pc1-trusty.deb sudo apt-get update apt-get install puppetserver I uninstall via apt-get but it seem when I install the master and the client again the cert does not work.

So your question is really about restoring certs in a DR situation?

Yes, but I tried all the solutions in the net and they didn't work. The next step is to uninstall.

I don't have a Debian-based system in front of me but I assume it's the same on CentOS.

These are the paths installed by the RPM:

# rpm -ql puppet-agent |cut -f1,2,3,4 -d/ |sort -u


# rpm -ql puppetserver |cut -f1,2,3,4 -d/ |sort -u                                                                                                                                   


# service puppetserver stop
# service puppet-agent stop
# rpm -e puppetserver
# rpm -e puppet-agent
# rm -rf /var/run/puppetlabs /var/log/puppetlabs /etc/puppetlabs /opt/puppetlabs

That's if you care about cleaning up all the old files.

So use the Debian equivalent of all those commands it should be all gone.
