ProcedureTo Delete a Directory Server Instance From the Command Line

Deleting a Directory Server instance completely removes all the files under the instance-path directory. If the databases and logs are saved in another directory, they are not removed while deleting a Directory Server instance. .

Before you delete an instance, back up your data as described in Chapter 8, Directory Server Backup and Restore, in Sun Directory Server Enterprise Edition 7.0 Administration Guide.

    $ dsccreg remove-server -h dscc-host -p dscc-registry-port /local/dsInst
    Enter DSCC administrator's password: directory-service-pwd
    /local/dsInst is an instance of DS
    Enter password of "cn=Directory Manager" for /local/dsInst:
    This operation will restart /local/dsInst.
