Delete Managed Servers

Before you begin

You cannot delete a server that is currently active; therefore, you cannot use the Administration Console to delete the Administration Server. (The Administration Console runs on the Administration Server.) For more information, see Delete the Administration Server.

You cannot delete a server if it is running a pinned service. Before you can delete such a server, you must migrate the service to a migratable target. See Migrating a Pinned Service to a Target Server Instance.

When you delete a server, WebLogic Server removes its associated configuration data from the domain's configuration file (config.xml). All of the configuration data for the server will be deleted. For example, any network channels that you created for the server are deleted, but applications and EJBs that are deployed on the server will not be deleted.

To delete a Managed Server:

  1. If you have not already done so, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Lock & Edit (see Use the Change Center).
  2. In the left pane of the Console, select Environment > Servers.
  3. In the Servers table, select the check box next to the name the server instance and click Delete.
  4. Confirm your deletion request.
  5. To activate these changes, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Activate Changes.
    Not all changes take effect immediately—some require a restart (see Use the Change Center).
