Distributed SMIT 2.2 for AIX: Guide and Reference

Removing a Domain

To remove a domain from the member list, use either the rmdsmitd command or a DSMIT interface. When you use a graphical interface, you can view which clients are being removed from the member list.

Note: Once you remove a domain, the DSMIT server can still manage the clients that were part of the domain name you removed. However, each individual client must be specified rather than just the domain name.

Prerequisite Conditions

A DSMIT server must reside on your system.
