How can I un-install all the nova services, or just nova-api and re-install it as a new fresh one? I don't seem to be able to uninstall nova-api since I don't know a way to un-install a program in Ubuntu in terminal except for manually removing the files in some directories, but removing files, such as /usr/bin/nova-api would not clean up all the things it has made in other directories.

Learning about package management in Ubuntu would also help... There are both command line and GUI tools, and you can't expect to run a real system without knowing at least the basics.

List all 'nova' packages with... dpkg -l | grep nova Remove all associated files with: apt-get purge <package_name>
