Deleting the repository on AIX

If you have made changes to your company and no longer require the use of a repository within your default federated repository, you can delete the repository from your configuration.

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.

To delete a repository from the default federated repository:

  1. Run...

      ./ConfigEngine.sh wp-query-repository -DWasPassword=password

    from the profile_root/ConfigEngine directory, to list the names and types of configured repositories.

  2. Edit...

      profile_root/ConfigEngine/properties/wkplc.properties

  3. Enter the following parameters in wkplc.properties under VMM Delete federated repository properties:

  4. Save changes to wkplc.properties.

  5. Run...

      ./ConfigEngine.sh wp-delete-repository -DWasPassword=password

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

  6. Propagate the security changes:

    Option Description
    Standalone

    1. cd profile_root/bin
      ./stopServer.sh server1 -username admin_userid -password admin_password

    2. cd profile_root/bin
      ./stopServer.sh WebSphere_Portal -username admin_userid -password admin_password

    3. cd profile_root/bin
      ./startServer.sh server1

    4. cd profile_root/bin
      ./startServer.sh WebSphere_Portal

    Cluster

    1. cd dmgr_profile/bin
      ./stopManager.sh-username admin_userid -password admin_password

    2. cd profile_root/bin
      ./stopNode.sh -username admin_userid -password admin_password

    3. cd profile_root/bin
      ./stopServer.sh WebSphere_Portal -username admin_userid -password admin_password

    4. cd dmgr_profile/bin
      ./startManager.sh

    5. cd profile_root/bin
      ./startNode.sh

    6. cd profile_root/bin
      ./startServer.sh WebSphere_Portal

If the deleted repository contained the base entry where new users and groups are stored, run the wp-update-entitytypes task to select a new base entry to store the new users and groups.

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