2.2 Starting, Stopping, or Deleting an Adapter

Adapters can be started or stopped individually or as a group. Use caution before deleting any adapter as there might be settings you wish to save first in order to recreate the adapter later.

The following sections provide steps for starting and stopping adapters:

2.2.1 Starting, Stopping, or Deleting an Adapter

IMPORTANT:Deleting an adapter deletes all regular expressions used to match elements associated with the adapter. These expressions can be viewed in the Match tab on the Elements property page for a Service Model element. Before deleting an adapter, you might want to copy these regular expressions, if it is necessary to re‑create them later.

To start, stop or delete an adapter:

  1. In the Explorer pane, expand Administration > Adapters.

  2. Right-click an adapter, then click one: Start Adapter, Stop Adapter, or Delete Adapter.

    The adapter starts or stops.

    If you select Delete Adapter, when the confirmation dialog box displays, click Yes.

2.2.2 Starting or Stopping All Adapters

To start or stop all adapters:

  1. In the Explorer pane, expand Administration.

  2. Right-click the Adapters element, then click Start all adapters or Stop all adapters.
