Uninstalling Core before the Plug-in removes the Plug-in bits without unregistering them from the Directory Server, which will prevent the Directory Server from starting unless you manually remove cn=pswsync,cn=plugins,cn=config.
Start the uninstaller program:
On Windows machines:
On Solaris or Linux machines, execute runUninstaller.sh or uninstall.cmd on Windows.
These programs are located in the installation directory (which is the /opt/SUNWisw directory on Solaris and /opt/sun/isw directory on Linux by default).
In the Welcome screen click Next.
Enter the Configuration Directory Host name and Port number.
Enter your administrator’s name and password for the configuration directory.
Select Core to be uninstalled and click Next.
Enter the configuration directory URL, click Refresh, and select the appropriate root suffix from the drop-down list.
Click Next to perform further uninstallation related tasks.
A summary window appears. Please follow the instructions presented in this window.
On Solaris systems: Uninstallation logs are written to /var/sadm/install/logs/
On Linux systems: Uninstallation logs are written to /var/sadm/install/logs/
On Windows systems: Uninstallation logs are written to the %TEMP% directory, which is a subdirectory of the Local Settings folder located under
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator
On some Windows systems (such as Windows 2000 Advanced Server), the Local Settings folder is a hidden folder.
To view this folder and the Temp subdirectory:
Open your Windows Explorer and select Tools -> Folder Options from the menu bar. When the Folder Options dialog box is displayed, select the View tab and enable the Show Hidden Files option.
Click Close to exit the program.
If you are unable to run the connector uninstaller for a given connector for any reason (for example, if you lost the connector files during a hard drive failure), use the idsync resetconn subcommand (see Using resetconn).
This command resets the connector state in the configuration directory to uninstalled so that you can reinstall it elsewhere. The resetconn subcommand is similar to other commands that access the configuration directory, and it provides two options:
-e dir-source: Specifies the name of the directory source to be reset. (Connectors are identified in the installers by their directory source name.)
-n (safe mode): Indicates whether the arguments specified for the command are correct without doing any work.
idsync resetconn -D “cn=Directory Manager”-w [-h CR-hostname] [-p 389] [-s dc=example,dc=sun,dc=com] -q [-Z] [-P “cert8.db“] [-m “secmod.db“] -e “dc=central, dc=example,dc=com“ [-n]
NOTICE: This program will reset the installation state to UNINSTALLED for the Connector associated with the specified DirectorySource ’dc=central,dc=example,dc=com’. Changing the Connector to an UNINSTALLED state is a last resort. This is NOT meant to be used for uninstalling connectors.It is typically used if you lost a machine with the connector on it and can not run the uninstaller. Additionally, this program will rewrite the existing configuration. This can be a lengthy process. Before proceeding, you should stop the Console, any running installers, and all other system processes. You may want to export the ou=Services tree in the configuration directory to ldif as a backup. Do you want to reset the installer settings for the connector (y/n)?
