I’ve decided to format our SLES 9 SP3 server and put a nice, fresh installation of SLES 10.1/OES2 onto it. Before I can do that though, I need to remove the SLES server and it’s replicas from eDirectory.
From a console session on the SLES server, run the following command (logged in as root):
ndsconfig rm -a cn=admin.o=myO
(replace cn=admin.o=myO with appropriate administrative credentials for your environment)
You will be warned bad things may happen if you continue (paraphrased), so just press y to continue the removal process. Ndsconfig will do it’s thing, and hopefully eDirectory will be removed from the server.
Once the server is decommissioned I suggest running a dsrepair on the server that holds the master replica.
