Questions about IPAM GPO's

1)
After installing IPAM, I checked the GPO's that were automatically installed and there appears to be more GPO's installed than are mentioned in the documentation. I understood that only 3 GPO's would be created - DC, DNS and DHCP GPO's. However, I have 9 GPO's. I'm thinking perhaps this may be because a couple of my DC's also have DNS and DHCP roles, and the GPO's are accommodating those roles. Please see attachment to see what I got.

2)
If I need to start over, how do I uninstall IPAM from my server. Thanks.

Are you using Server 2012 or 2012R2?

In my environment, with IPAM on Server 2012, I only have 3 GPOs for IPAM:
IPAM_DC_NPS
IPAM_DHCP
IPAM_DNS

The GPOs listed in your screenshot look strange, particularly because of the repetitive names.  Does the RD in the policy names mean something to you?  If you know where that came from, it might lead you to the issue that caused the triplicate policies.  

As for how to uninstall IPAM, you should simply be able to remove the feature from the server, then re-add it to get a fresh start.

I'm not certain, but I don't believe there were any major changes to IPAM which would account for the additional policy objects, particularly with such strange names.  If it were me, I would the feature from the server at this point, making sure the related GPOs get deleted, and then re-install it.
