Remove a remote node (dmgr)

  1. In the dmgr, expand System Administration and select Nodes.
  2. Checkmark the node you want to remove and select Remove Node.

Note: If Remove Node fails to remove the node, you can try using Force Delete. Don't worry, Force Delete will not delete the node. Force Delete is just a more aggressive removal of the node from the dmgr.

  1. Select OK.
  2. Select Save.

 

Remove a remote node (command line)

You will run this command from the server that contains the node that you want to remove from the deployment manager. Only user account that have the Administrator role are permitted to run the removeNode command. This will stop the node agent, and the WebSphere application servers (aka JVMs) in the node.

${WAS_INSTALL_ROOT}/profiles/your_profile/bin/removeNode.sh your_node

 

There will be a prompt to provide a username and password. Use a username and password of a user that has the Administrator or Operator role on the deployment manager.

Username: deployment_manager_username
Password: deployment_manager_password

 

Be aware that after you remove the node from the dmgr, some references to the node will remain. You can use the cleanupNode.bat (Windows) or cleanupNode.sh (Linux) command on the dmgr to remove the references to the node.

${WAS_INSTALL_ROOT}/profiles/your_profile/bin/cleanupNode.sh your_node -profileName your_profile
