- Create or obtain the topology.json file either manually or by using external automation. When promoting from a dev/test environment to a stage/prod environment, you can obtain a topology.json file using the manage-topology export subcommand.
If the server is not present in the topology JSON file, remove it from the
topology, as follows:
remove-defunct-server --topologyFilePath /path/to/topology.json \ --ignore-online \ --serverInstanceName instance-name --retryTimeoutSeconds 120
For the sake of simplicity, LDAP bind options are omitted.
