We are doing our setup for PASOE appservers. We are creating multiple db\appserver instances for testing purpose. We have noticed one thing whenever we are deleting any db\appserver instance folder it is clearing all appservers entries, may be its clearing dlc\bin\instances.windows file entries of appservers. I am not able to manually update instances.windows file as well due to permission issues.
Can someone please assist whats happening here?
Can you please mention, how are you deleting an instance folder ? are you doing it manually or with the help of utility ?
It will be helpful if you can give info about your OpenEdge environment (Version etc ...) also.
In general we can delete a pas instance with the help of "pasman" utility and the command for that is -
proenv> pasman delete <instance_name>
It will delete the respective instance folder from WRK directory and along with the entry of this instance from instances.windows file.
Just for the information, instances.windows file location is "dlc\servers\pasoe\conf\instances.windows".
This is the expected behavior. When you delete a pasoe instance it will delete the entry in instance.windows or instances.unix file.
As the instance is no more available, there is no requirement of maintaining the entry as it will cause an issue while creating another instance with the same name.
