Deleting scheduled tasks for Search
Use SearchService administrative commands to delete scheduled task definitions from the Home page database.
To use SearchService administrative commands, you must use the wsadmin client. See Starting the wsadmin client for information about how to start the wsadmin command-line tool.
- To delete scheduled tasks for Search, complete the following steps.
Start the wsadmin client from one of the following directories on the system on which you installed the Deployment Manager:
where app_server_root is the WebSphere® Application Server installation directory and dm_profile_root is the Deployment Manager profile directory, typically dmgr01.
You must start the client from this directory or subsequent commands that you enter do not execute correctly.
