    ndsconfig rm -a <user name> -w passwd -c 
    
  2. Use either of the following in the automated script for the de-configuration of eDirectory:

    Passing the password through environment variable: ndsconfig rm -a <user name> -w env:<environment variable> -c

    Passing the password through file: ndsconfig rm -a <user name> -w file:<filename with absolute/relative path> -c

  3. (Optional) In case of multiple instances, run the following command for individual instances:

    ndsconfig rm -a <user name> -w passwd  --config-file <absolute path for configuration file>
    

    For example:

    ndsconfig rm -a admin.novell -w n -c
    
    ndsconfig rm -a admin.novell -w env:ADM_PASWD -c
    
    ndsconfig rm -a admin.novell -w file:/Builds/88SP8/adm_paswd -c

    nds-uninstall -u
