To remove a non-existent server from DSCC

Can not unregister a server from the DSCC (that has already been deleted by running dsadm delete) due to the "does not exist" error.

For example -

$ ./dsccreg remove-server /home/oracle/
Enter DSCC administrator's password:
/home/oracle/ does not exist

When running dsccreg list-servers, the instance (that has already been deleted by running dsadm delete) is still listed.
For example, the instance with port 6389 has already been deleted by running dsadm delete  -

From the output above, the value for iPath (for the instance on port 6389) also does not exist -

$ ls -l /home/oracle/ ls: /home/oracle/ No such file or directory

When running dsccreg list-servers with the -C option (Verify that each registered server instance is accessible from DSCC), it shows the server as down -

Hostname    Port  sPort  Type  Owner   Flags  iPath                            LDAP  sTLS  LDAPS
