Error description

  • A datasource can not be deleted via the admin console.  The
    delete fails with a NoSuchElementException:
    
    Error 500

Local fix

  • Delete the resource via wsadmin:
    
    AdminConfig.remove('(path_to_resources.xml|resources.xml#CMPConn
    ectorFactory_yyy)')
    
    AdminConfig.remove('(path_to_resources.xml|resources.xml#DataSou
    rce_zzz)')
    
    AdminConfig.save()
    
    Sync1
    =AdminControl.completeObjectName('type=NodeSync,node=node,*')
    
    AdminControl.invoke(Sync1, 'sync')
    
    Where path_to_resources.xml is the path to the resources.xml
    file at the scope for which the datsource was defined.  For
    example at the server level this would be:
    
    cells/cell_name/nodes/node_name/servers/server_name
    
    yyy and zzz are the identifer numbers for the specific
    DataSource and CMPConnectorFactory which are to be deleted.
