Before you begin
The server instance for which you want to disable MSI does not need to be running.
When a Managed Server starts, it tries to contact the Administration Server to retrieve its configuration information. If a Managed Server cannot connect to the Administration Server during startup, it can retrieve its configuration by reading configuration and security files directly. A Managed Server that starts in this way is running in Managed Server Independence (MSI) mode.
After you finish
If the Managed Server is running, restart it.
