Deleting the LDAP entity type on AIX

If you made changes to your LDAP user registry and no longer require an entity type that you created, you can delete it.

In a single server environment the WebSphere_Portal and server1 servers can be either stopped or started.

In a clustered environment stop all appservers on the system including WebSphere_Portal and server1 and then start the nodeagent and deployment manager servers before starting the following task.

Perform the following steps to delete the LDAP user registry entity type:

  1. Edit...

      profile_root/ConfigEngine/properties/wkplc.properties

  2. Enter the following parameters under the VMM LDAP entity type configuration heading:

  3. Save changes to wkplc.properties.

  4. Run...

      ./ConfigEngine.sh wp-delete-ldap-entitytype -DWasPassword=password

    from the profile_root/ConfigEngine directory, to delete an LDAP entity type.

  5. Propagate the security changes:

    Option Description
    Standalone cd profile_root/bin
    ./stopServer.sh server1 -username admin_userid -password admin_password
    ./stopServer.sh WebSphere_Portal -username admin_userid -password admin_password
    ./startServer.sh server1
    ./startServer.sh WebSphere_Portal
    Cluster cd dmgr_profile/bin
    ./stopManager.sh-username admin_userid -password admin_password
    cd profile_root/bin
    ./stopNode.sh -username admin_userid -password admin_password
    ./stopServer.sh WebSphere_Portal -username admin_userid -password admin_password
    cd dmgr_profile/bin
    ./startManager.sh
    cd profile_root/bin
    ./startNode.sh
    ./startServer.sh WebSphere_Portal

If you performed these steps after creating the clustered environment, run enable-jcr-security on the secondary node.
