Use the delete-instance command to delete a server instance. The delete-instance command can be run both locally and remotely. If a standalone instance is deleted (i.e. the instance's configuration name is server–name–config and no other clusters or unclustered instances refer to this configuration), its standalone configuration will be automatically deleted as well.
The Node Agent need not be running (or even installed or created) to delete a server instance. However, if the Node Agent is running, the command will delete the instance. If the Node Agent is not running, it will delete the instance the next time it is started. If a standalone instance is deleted, that is, the instance's configuration name is server—name-config and no other clusters or unclustered instances refer to this configuration, then its standalone configuration will be automatically deleted as well.
The authorized domain administration 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 administration 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_MQPASSWORD, AS_ADMIN_ALIASPASSWORD, and so on.
