Steps to remove a domain from Weblogic Server

As of now there is no out of the box feature with Weblogic Configuration wizard to remove or delete a domain. These are basically manual steps.

For example if I want to delete a domain named geo_domain below are the steps you need to remove the domain.

  1. Open domain-registry.xml under $Middleware_HOME .Remove the corresponding entry referring to geo_domain.

CodeSnippet :: domain-registry.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<domain-registry xmlns="http://xmlns.oracle.com/weblogic/domain-registry">

<domain location="C:\Oracle\Middleware\user_projects\domains\soa_domain"/>

<domain location="C:\Oracle\Middleware\user_projects\domains\geo_domain"/>


  1. Open nodemanager.domains file under $Middleware_HOME \wlserver_10.3\common\nodemanager\ folder. Remove the corresponding entry referring to geo_domain.

CodeSnippet :: nodemanager.domains

#Domains and directories created by Configuration Wizard


  1. Delete the domain folder under domains folder manually.


  1. Delete the domain folder under applications folder manually.

$Middleware_HOME\user_projects\ applications\geo_domain
