How to unregister SUSE Manager Client

This document (7013242) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.

Environment


SUSE Manager

Situation

A client is registered to SUSE Manager, but needs to be unregistered.

Resolution

In order to unregister a SUSE Manager client, several rpms must be removed. Try the following method first:

# zypper rm -u spacewalksd spacewalk-check zypp-plugin-spacewalk
 
This will show the following:
 
Refreshing service 'spacewalk'.
Loading repository data...
Reading installed packages...
Resolving package dependencies...
 
The following packages are going to be REMOVED:
  spacewalk-check spacewalk-client-setup spacewalksd zypp-plugin-python zypp-plugin-spacewalk
 
5 packages to remove.
After the operation, 301.0 KiB will be freed.
Continue? [y/n/?] (y):
 
The above 5 rpm packages are client specific, and should be removed.
 
If this fails, you'll have to do this manually.  Don't do the "rpm -e" commands unless the "zypper rm" command above fails.
 
rpm -e spacewalk-client-setup
rpm -e spacewalksd
rpm -e spacewalk-check
rpm -e zypp-plugin-spacewalk
rpm -e zypp-plugin-python
 
After this is complete, remove the following file:
  /etc/sysconfig/rhn/systemid
 
That file only exists on a client machine and is used to register itself with SUSE Manager.
 
When this is done, refresh the repositories on the server (zypper ref -s), and then list them out (zypper lr) and make sure everything looks good.
