Deleting the base entry on Linux

If you made changes to your LDAP user registry and no longer require a base entry 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 base entry:

  1. Perform the following steps to delete the base entry from a realm before deleting the base entry:

    1. Edit...

        profile_root/ConfigEngine/properties/wkplc.properties

    2. Enter a value for the following parameters under the VMM realm configuration heading:

    3. Save changes to wkplc.properties.

    4. Run...

        ./ConfigEngine.sh wp-delete-realm-baseentry -DWasPassword=password

      from the profile_root/ConfigEngine directory, to delete a base entry from a realm configuration.

    5. Cycle all necessary servers to propagate changes.

  2. Edit...

      profile_root/ConfigEngine/properties/wkplc.properties

  3. Enter a value for the following parameters under the VMM repository base entry configuration heading to create additional base entries within the LDAP user registry to use when creating realms:

  4. Save changes to wkplc.properties.

  5. Run...

      ./ConfigEngine.sh wp-delete-base-entry -DWasPassword=password

    from the profile_root/ConfigEngine directory, to delete a base entry from a repository.

  6. 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 the enable-jcr-security task on the secondary node; see Enabling LDAP security after cluster creation.
