Removing Profiles

You can remove all user-defined profiles or a specified user-defined profile from memory and persistent storage by using the netcfg destroy -a command.

Note - System-defined profiles, which include the Automatic NCP and the NoNet and Automatic Location profiles, cannot be removed.

The syntax for the destroy command is as follows:

netcfg destroy object-type [ class ] object-name

Alternatively, you can use the following command to remove all of the user-defined profiles in a system:

netcfg destroy -a

Example 4-6 Removing All User-Defined Profiles by Using netcfg Command-Line Mode

To remove all of the user-defined profiles on a system, type the following command:

$ netcfg destroy -a

Because at least one profile must be active on the system at all times, and to avoid in-use errors when removing user-defined profiles, make sure that you enable the Automatic NCP before using the destroy -a command.

Example 4-7 Removing a Specific User-Defined Profile by Using netcfg Command-Line Mode

To remove a specific user-defined profile on the system, for example the NCP named User, type the following command:

$ netcfg destroy ncp User

The destroy command can also be used to remove NCUs from an existing NCP. In the following example, an interface NCU with the name net1 is removed from the user-defined NCP:

$ netcfg "select ncp User; destroy ncu ip net1"

To confirm that a profile has been removed, use the list subcommand, as shown here:

$ netcfg
netcfg> select ncp User
netcfg:ncp:User> list
        phys    net1
netcfg> exit
Nothing to commit

Example 4-8 Interactively Removing a Profile

In the following example, an IP NCU named net2 is removed.

$ netcfg list
$ netcfg
netcfg> select ncp User
netcfg:ncp:User> list
        phys    net2
        ip      net2
netcfg:ncp:User> destroy ncu ip net2
Destroyed ncu 'net2'
netcfg:ncp:User> list
        phys    net2
netcfg:ncp:User> end
netcfg> exit
Nothing to commit
