pkidestroy - Man Page

Removes a subsystem from an instance of PKI server.

Synopsis

pkidestroy -s subsystem -i instance [-u security_domain_username] [-W security_domain_password_file] [-h] [-v]

Description

Removes a subsystem from an instance of PKI server. This utility removes any of the PKI subsystems (CA, KRA, OCSP, TKS, and TPS).

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.

Options

-s subsystem

Specifies the subsystem to be removed, where subsystem is CA, KRA, OCSP, TKS, or TPS.
   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.

-v

Displays verbose information about the installation.
   This flag can be provided multiple times to increase verbosity.
   See pkidestroy -h for details.
