How to Remove 389 Directory Server on CentOS 6.2

In this post, i will show you the quick step to remove 389 Directory Server on linux CentOS 6.2 server. This is actually to remove the directory instances. This can be perform by using ds_removal or remove-ds.pl. It will remove all of the instance specific files and paths except for the slapd-INSTANCENAME directory, which is just renamed to slapd-INSTANCENAME.removed. If you don’t want to keep any of your configuration or key/cert data, you can erase this directory. If you are using the console/admin server, and the machine is the one hosting the configuration directory server (i.e. this is the first machine you ran setup-ds-admin.pl on), and you just want to wipe out everything and start over, use remove-ds-admin.pl.
