Removes a key/certificate entry from the specified server keystore.


asadmin remove-from-keystore [--help]


This command removes a private key and certificate entry from the target instance or listener’s keystore matching the provided alias.

If the instance or listener is configured to use the default key store, the command will instead synchronize the instance with the DAS (under the assumption the certificate has been removed from the default key store of the DAS), since any certificates removed from the instance stores would be lost upon its next synchronisation.
