Use this option in the case where multiple OpenSSO Enterprise instances are configured to share the same configuration datastore and at least one of the instances is uncorrupted.
Log in to the console of an uncorrupted instance of OpenSSO Enterprise as administrator.
Remove the corrupted OpenSSO Enterprise instance(s) from the platform server list.
The de-provisioning of the OpenSSO configuration datastore node will take effect after all the OpenSSO servers are restarted.
Remove all files and directories from the existing configuration directory for all corrupted instances of OpenSSO Enterprise.
$ rm -rf configuration_directory
Restart all instances of OpenSSO Enterprise including those that are corrupted.
Reconfigure the OpenSSO Enterprise web application on the corrupted OpenSSO Enterprise instance by accessing the OpenSSO Enterprise configurator.
All configuration attributes must be redefined as they were originally defined.
Import the saved service configuration data to the configuration datastore using the ssoadm command line utility option import-svc-cfg.
./ssoadm import-svc-cfg -u username -f password_file_location -e key_to_enctrypt_password -X backup_xml_file
In the case of the multiple server configuration, this step only needs to be done once.
Restart all OpenSSO Enterprise instances.
