Delete a VLV index using the dsconfig tool. Before deleting it, check that the index is not being used in any plugin applications.

  1. To remove a VLV index from the database, use dsconfig with the delete-local-db-vlv-index option.
    $ bin/dsconfig delete-local-db-vlv-index --index-name givenName \ 
      --backend-name userRoot
  2. To verify the deletion, try to view the VLV index.
    $ bin/dsconfig get-local-db-vlv-index-prop --index-name givenName \ 
      --backend-name userRoot
