5.5 Deleting Oracle Traffic Director Instances

You can delete instances of a configuration by using either the administration console or the CLI.

Deleting an Oracle Traffic Director Instance Using the Administration Console

To delete an Oracle Traffic Director instance by using the administration console, do the following:

  1. Log in to the administration console, as described in Section 2.3.2, "Accessing the Administration Console."

  2. Click the Configurations button that is situated at the upper left corner of the page.

    A list of the available configurations is displayed.

  3. Select the configuration for which you want to delete instances.

  4. In the navigation pane, select Instances.

  5. Click the Delete button for the instance that you want to delete.


    To delete an instance that is part of a failover group, you should first remove the instance from the failover group. For more information, see Section 14.2.4, "Managing Failover Groups."

    A message is displayed in the Console Messages pane confirming that the instance was deleted.

Deleting Oracle Traffic Director Instances Using the CLI

To delete Oracle Traffic Director instances of a configuration, run the delete-instance command.

For example, the following command deletes the instance of the configuration soa running on nodes apps1 and apps2.

tadm> delete-instance --config=soa apps1 apps2


You can delete an instance that is part of a failover group by using the --force option, but if you do so, all the failover groups to which the instance belongs will also be deleted.

For more information about delete-instance, see the Oracle Traffic Director Command-Line Reference or run the command with the --help option.
