pkidestroy - Removes a subsystem from an instance of Certificate Server.
pkidestroy -s <subsystem> -i <instance> [-u <secutiry domain
username>] [-W <security domain password file>] [-h] [-v] [-p
Removes a subsystem from an instance of Certificate Server. This utility removes
any of the Java-based Certificate Server subsystems (CA, KRA, OCSP, and TKS).
An instance can contain multiple subsystems, although it may contain at most one
of each type of subsystem. So, for example, an instance could contain CA and
KRA subsystems, but not two CA subsystems. If pkidestroy
is invoked on
the last subsystem in the instance, then that instance is removed. Typically,
as subsystems need to contact the CA to update the security domain, the CA
instance should be the last instance to be removed.
- -s <subsystem>
- Specifies the subsystem to be removed, where
<subsystem> is CA, KRA, OCSP, or TKS. If this option is not
specified, pkidestroy will prompt for its value.
- -i <instance>
- Specifies the name of the instance from which the subsystem
should be removed. The instance is located at
/var/log/pki/<instance>. If this option is not specified,
pkidestroy will prompt for its value.
- -u <security domain username>
- Specifies the username of the security domain of the
subsystem. This is an optional parameter.
- -W <security domain password file>
- Specifies the file containing the password of the security
domain of the subsystem. This is an optional parameter.
- -h, --help
- Prints additional help information.
- Displays verbose information about the installation. This
flag can be provided multiple times to increase verbosity. See
pkidestroy -h for details.
