Probably a dumb question, but just making sure I understand the concepts correctly.
Assume I have a the following:
Now "second_zone_configuration" is made active.
I no longer need original_zone_configuration.
if I do a cfgdelete "original_zone_configuration" from CLI or equivalnet using GUI interface,
will this just delete the group of pointers to alias_server1 and alias_target1 (so I can't use that configuration set)
actually delete those objects (alias_server1,alias_target1) from future reference out of the DB.
I really just want to make sure that they alias and zone defintions defined are still present. (Especially if they are used in active configuration)
Sorry if it is a dumb question. Rather be safe than looking for a new job.
Solved! Go to Solution.

The cfg is the "collection" of zones that would be active. Deleting the cfg should not affect the zones that have been configured (added to an active cfg or not), nor should it affect any aliases that have been configured (added to an active zone or not).
Now, there *is* a command that will remove then. ZoneObjectExpunge. This one you *must* be careful with as it removes all items with the object. For example, run on a zone, it removes the zones and the aliases. Run on a cfg, it removes the cfg, zones, and aliases. (I might be explaining this one wrong... But I still use caution with it!)
