Delete proxy servers using the job manager

We can submit the Delete proxy server job to remove a server from the flexible management environment. The job can delete a proxy server from a stand-alone server or a federated node of a deployment manager.

Start the job manager and the targets. If a target is a stand-alone application server, also start the administrative agent.

To submit the Delete proxy server job, the target must support proxy servers.

Each proxy server to delete must be a managed resource of the job manager.

Use the administrative console of the job manager or the deployment manager to delete a proxy server from one or more managed targets. From the console, choose the Delete proxy server job, specify server and job options, review the summary, and submit the job.

The job stops the proxy server, if it is running, and removes the proxy server from the flexible management environment.

Instead of using a console, we can run the deleteProxyServer job script in the AdministrativeJobs command group. See the Administrative job types topic.


  1. Click Jobs > Submit from the navigation tree of the administrative console.

  2. Choose a job to delete a proxy server.

    1. Select the Delete proxy server job type from the list.

    2. Optionally specify a description of the job.

    3. Click Next.

  3. Choose the job targets from which to delete the proxy server.

    1. Select a group of targets from the list, or select Target names.

    2. If we selected Target names, then specify a target name and click Add, or click Find and specify the chosen targets on the Find targets page.

    3. If user authentication is required, specify a user name, password, or any other authentication values as needed.

    4. Click Next.

  4. Specify parameters for the delete proxy server job.

    1. For Server name, specify the name of the proxy server to delete.

      To see the names of existing servers on the targets, click Find on the Specify job parameters page. On the Find target resources page, specify the targets and click Find.

      For example, suppose a managed target, myNode01, has a server named proxy_server_2 to delete. Specify the server name:

    2. If the target is in a WebSphere Application Server, Network Deployment cell, specify the node name in the cell from which to delete the server.

      We do not have to specify the node name for a base (stand-alone) node.

      For example, suppose the managed node, myNode01, is a federated node in a WAS ND cell. Specify the node name:

    3. Click Next.

  5. Schedule the job.

    1. Optionally specify one or more email addresses where notifications are sent when the job finishes.

      If we specify multiple email addresses, separate them with commas.

    2. Select when the job is available for submission.

    3. Select the job expiration.

    4. Optionally specify a recurring interval for the job, a start date and time for the interval, and an end date and time for the interval.

    5. Click Next.

  6. Review the summary, and click Finish to submit the job.

The targets run the job and attempt to delete a proxy server.

What to do next

On the Job status page, click the ID of the delete proxy server job and view the job status. If the job is not successful, view any error messages that result from running the job, correct the error condition, and submit the job again.

If the job is successful, click Jobs > Target resources. The names of deleted servers are not in the list of resources.
