Deleting the LDAP group member

If you changed your LDAP user registry and no longer require the group member, you can delete it from the LDAP user registry.

Before you begin

In a stand-alone server environment, you can complete the following task when the servers are either stopped or started. In a clustered environment, start the deployment manager and node agent. Then, verify that they are able to synchronize.


  1. Go to the wp_profile_root/ConfigEngine/properties directory.
  2. Open the file with a text editor.
  3. Enter a value for the following parameters under the VMM LDAP group member attribute configuration heading:
    Note: Go to the properties file for specific information about the parameters.
    • gm.groupMemberName
  4. Save your changes to the file.
  5. Open a command prompt.
  6. Change to the wp_profile_root/ConfigEngine directory.
  7. Run the following task to delete the group member information for your LDAP user registry:
    • AIX® HP-UX Linux™ Solaris: ./ wp-delete-ldap-groupmember -DWasPassword=password
    • IBM® i: wp-delete-ldap-groupmember -DWasPassword=password
    • Windows™: ConfigEngine.bat wp-delete-ldap-groupmember -DWasPassword=password
    • z/OS®: ./ wp-delete-ldap-groupmember -DWasPassword=password
  8. Stop and restart the appropriate servers to propagate the changes. For instructions, go to Starting and stopping servers, deployment managers, and node agents.
