28.2 Removing Objects from the Identity Vault

The first step in uninstalling Identity Manager is to delete all Identity Manager objects from the Identity Vault. When the driver set is created, the wizard prompts you to make the driver set a partition. If any driver set objects are also partition root objects in eDirectory, the partition must be merged into the parent partition before you can delete the driver set object.

To remove objects from the Identity Vault:

  1. Perform a health check on the eDirectory database, then fix any errors that occur before proceeding.

    For more information, see Keeping eDirectory Healthy in the NetIQ eDirectory Administration Guide.

  2. Log in to iManager as an administrator with full rights to the eDirectory tree.

  3. Select Partitions and Replica > Merge Partition.

  4. Browse to and select the driver set object that is the partition root object, then click OK.

  5. Wait for the merge process to complete, then click OK.

  6. Delete the driver set object.

    When you delete the driver set object, the process deletes all the driver objects associated with that driver set.

  7. Repeat Step 3 through Step 6 for each driver set object that is in the eDirectory database, until they are all deleted.

  8. Repeat Step 1 to ensure that all merges completed and all of the objects have been deleted.
