deleting metadata records

hi how can i delete records in my metadata tables?

i defined an authentication domain back then and i want to delete it but i don't know how.

the same goes with a machine i defined back then.

if i delete this entries will it affect other tables as well?

thanks a lot!

Re: deleting metadata records

About Auth domains there is no support in the GUI to delete them. In 9,2, you can:

http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/mcsecug/61708/HTML/default/n11xfvoau0jli0n1cl6rtfh5idfx....

Of course, you could use the metadata API to remove things. But it's highly recomended not to do so unless necessary because of the possibility to corrupt the whole metadata server...

What do you exactly mean by "machine", describe what you have defined in more detail.

Re: deleting metadata records

i'm referring to the associated machine i entered when i was adding a server in the SMC. it appears in the license manager tree in the SMC.

Am i right that there's no support in the GUI just like my concern on authdomains?

thanks a lot!

Re: deleting metadata records

Haven't worked with license manager, so I can't really tell.
Yes, there is no support for this in 9.1.3.
