Uninstall AD\AM
I guess a lesson on installing AD\AM wouldn't be complete without a section on uninstalling AD\AM. Well I can't really justify a whole section, but a short paragraph or two should suffice.

You can uninstall AD\AM in two easy:

  • Via the Add\Remove Programs – If you use the unattended method for installing AD\AM ensure that the "ShowInAddRemovePrograms" option is set to "Show".
  • Using the adamuninstall.exe tool from the %SYSTEMDRIVE%\Windows\ADAM folder. This tool has the following command line switches:
    • /Q – Runs quietly (no UI)
    • /answer – Uses an unattended file
    • /force – Ignores all warnings and forces a dismount on files in use
    • /i – Removes the instance with a specific name (i.e., DevX)
    • /tools – Removes the ADAM administration tools
    • /restorearchive – Restores an archived AD\AM database
    • /deletearchive – Deletes an archived AD\AM database

So to simply remove your AD\AM instance, you can use the following command:



://Change to the directory where our uninstall files are CD %SYSTEMDRIVE%\Windows\ADAM ://Launch our AD\AM uninstallation adamuninstall.exe /i DevX /force

AD/AM in Action
AD\AM is a very simple, yet powerful, LDAP database you can use to handle authentication for your online applications, without requiring a full-blown NOS directory.

Installation of AD\AM is just the first step. AD\AM has many parts, and you can enjoy many hours just exploring it!
