You can delete a VLV index using the dsconfig tool. Check that the index is not being used in any plugin applications before deleting it.

  1. Use dsconfig with the delete-local-db-vlv-index option to remove it from the database.
    $ bin/dsconfig delete-local-db-vlv-index --index-name givenName \ 
      --backend-name userRoot
  2. Verify the deletion by trying to view the vlv index.
    $ bin/dsconfig get-local-db-vlv-index-prop --index-name givenName \ 
      --backend-name userRoot
