Oracle Fusion Middleware Administration Guide for Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition

ProcedureTo Delete a Directory Proxy Server Instance

You can use DSCC to perform this task. For information, see Directory Service Control Center Interface and the DSCC online help.

  1. (Optional) Stop the Directory Proxy Server instance.

    $ dpadm stop instance-path

    If you do not stop the instance, the delete command will stop it automatically. However, if you have enabled the instance in a service management solution, you must stop it manually.

  2. (Optional) If you have previously used DSCC to manage the server, use the command line to unregister the server.

    $ dsccreg remove-server /local/dps
    Enter DSCC administrator's password:
    /local/dps is an instance of DPS
    Enter password of "cn=Proxy Manager" for /local/dps:
    Unregistering /local/dps from DSCC on localhost.
    Connecting to /local/dps
    Disabling DSCC access to /local/dps

    For details, see the dsccreg(1M) man page.

  3. (Optional) If you previously enabled the server instance in a service management solution, then disable the server from being managed as a service.
