Removing icinga director

hi guys,

may I ask if there are any steps to properly remove icinga director? below is the current environment:
OS: CentOS 6.8
icingaweb 2.3.4
director - 1.6.2
monitoring - 2.3.4


  • Disable the module
  • Purge the module from /usr/share/icingaweb2/modules/director
  • Purge configuration from /usr/share/icingaweb2/modules/director
  • Drop the director database in MySQL
  • Delete the director config package from Icinga 2’s REST API

Shouldn’t this be /etc/icingaweb2/modules/director?

Small dummy question, as I have never used the package deletion via API before:
Does this only remove the packages (stored under /var/lib/icinga2/api/packages, correct?) or do the other folders under /var/lib/icinga2/api/ also get removed?

Yep, you’re right. Little tired today, writing a release blogpost actually.

The reason why I have pointed to the REST API call - it safely removes everything needed, and the user shouldn’t fiddle with /var/lib/icinga2 at all. This may result in unexpected behaviour for the daemon and only is an advanced step.

Thanks @dnsmichi!

Will this require a restart of the icinga services?

Deleting the config package should trigger a restart of Icinga 2, that’s enough.
