The delete-cluster command deletes a cluster. A cluster can be deleted only if it contains no server instances. Stop and delete all server instances in the cluster before deleting the cluster.
If a standalone cluster is deleted (that is, the cluster's configuration name is cluster_name-config and no other clusters or unclustered instances refer to this configuration), then its standalone configuration is automatically deleted.
This command is supported in remote mode only.
The authorized domain application server administrative username.
The ––password option is deprecated. Use ––passwordfile instead.
This option replaces the –– password option. Using the ––password option on the command line or through the environment is deprecated. The ––passwordfile option specifies the name of a file containing the password entries in a specified format. The entry for the password must have the AS_ADMIN_ prefix followed by the password name in capital letters. For example, to specify the domain application server password, use an entry with the following format: AS_ADMIN_PASSWORD=password, where password is the actual administrator password. Other passwords that can be specified include AS_ADMIN_MAPPEDPASSWORD, AS_ADMIN_USERPASSWORD, AS_ADMIN_SAVEDMASTERPASSWORD, AS_ADMIN_MQPASSWORD, AS_ADMIN_ALIASPASSWORD, and so on.
