Deleting a database

When you no longer need a particular database, you can delete the database and all associated configuration information from the management console. When you delete a database from the console, you are not deleting the actual, physical database files; you are only deleting the database definition from the file. After you delete the database, it no longer appears in the console.
You cannot delete a database that is running. You must first stop the database and then delete it.
To delete a database from the management console:
1. Click Resources in the management console menu. All resources managed by your console appear in the grid frame.
2. Filter or search for the database whose status you want to delete.
3. Click the Edit icon. The Database details page appears.
4. Click Delete and then click OK to confirm the deletion.
The OpenEdge Management Resources page appears. A set of next-step options that are related to resources are available for your use.
