The Veritas product installer enables you to uninstall the product. You can simultaneously uninstall the product from multiple remote nodes. To uninstall the product from remote nodes, ensure that the product is installed on the local node.
Uninstalling the Server components, uninstalls the client components and the applicable high availability, replication and the database agents, if any.
To uninstall using the product installer
By default the local system is selected for uninstallation. In case you are performing a remote uninstallation and do not want to uninstall the software from the local system, you must remove the system from the list.
You can add the systems in one of the following ways:
In the System Name or IP text box, manually type the system name and click Add.
Alternatively, browse to select the systems.
The systems that belong to the domain in which you have logged in are listed in the Available Systems list. Select one or more systems and click the right arrow to move them to the Selected Systems list. Click OK. Once you add or select a system, wizard performs the verification checks, and notes the verification details.
Note that the wizard fails to proceed with the uninstallation, unless all the selected systems have passed the verification checks and are ready for uninstallation. In case the verification checks have failed on any of the system, review the details and rectify the issue. Before you choose to proceed with the uninstallation click Re-verify to re-initiate the verification checks for this node.
Note that the Automatically reboot systems after installer completes operation check box is selected by default. This selection reboots the remote systems immediately after the installation is complete on the respective system. If you do not want the wizard to initiate this auto reboot, clear the selection of Automatically reboot systems after installer completes operation check box.
The wizard stops the product-specific services and discovers the processes running, if any, on the systems. These processes need to be stopped to proceed with the operation. Click Next to forcefully stop the processes and proceed with the operation. Alternatively, you can manually stop the processes.
If the services or processes cannot be stopped, the operation fails. Rectify the error and then click Retry to validate the affected system again. Click Retry All to validate all the systems again.
If the uninstallation has failed on any of the system, review its summary report and check the log file for details.
In case you had not selected to initiate the auto reboot for the remote systems, ensure that you manually reboot these systems.
