Remove katello plugin from the Foreman

**Question: Is it possible to remove katello from a foreman installation?

**Expected outcome: Delete katello and only use the foreman

**Foreman and Proxy versions:1.22

**Foreman and Proxy plugin versions:1.22

**Distribution and version: Centos 7


short answer: no, that is not possible.

Long answer:
Removing Plugins has been a problematic topic with Foreman for a long time. There is usually no workflow for how to uninstall a plugin. Katello beeing a very “special” plugin that even requires it’s own setup routine and changes quite a lot about the complete setup for the stack is even worse.

If you want a setup without Katello, you will sadly have to re-setup your environment and migrate the hosts, I fear.



Thanks!. I couldn’t find any documentation on the subject. But this explains why.
