Using the NIM unconfig operation

Use the unconfig operation to unconfigure the NIM master.

The unconfig operation must be performed before the NIM master can be reconfigured or the NIM master fileset can be uninstalled.

Attention: Performing the unconfig operation removes all information from the NIM database and should be used with caution.
The command line syntax for the unconfig operation is as follows:
nim -o unconfig master

The target of the unconfig operation must be the NIM master.

No attributes can be specified for the unconfig operation.

The unconfig operation completely unconfigures the NIM master by performing the following:

  • Removes the nimesis and nimd daemon entries from the System Resource Controller (SRC)
  • Removes all data from the nim_attr and nim_object databases
