9.1 Uninstalling the Identity Server

Uninstalling the Novell Identity Server (NIDS) on your Linux box is a two-step process:

  1. Delete references to NIDS reporting on the Administration Console.

  2. Uninstall NIDS from your host Linux machine.

9.1.1 Deleting NIDS References

As part of the full NIDS uninstallation process, you must delete the Identity Server from the Administration Console. The Identity Server must first be removed from the cluster configuration, then it can be deleted from the Administration Console. You must do this before removing the software from the machine.

  1. In the Administration Console, click Devices > Identity Servers.

  2. Select the Identity Server you are going to delete, then click Stop.

  3. When the server’s health turns red, select the Identity Server, click Actions, then click Remove from Cluster.

  4. Update the cluster configuration.

  5. Select the Identity Server that you are going to uninstall, then click Actions > Delete.

  6. Continue with Section 9.1.2, Uninstalling NIDS.
