Deleting the LDAP entity type on i5/OS

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

    • 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.
