2.4 Uninstalling Operations Center from a Server

You can uninstall Operations Center software and its related components by running the uninstaller then deleting any remaining files in the Operations Center directory.

To uninstall Operations Center software:

  1. Log in to the Operations Center server.

  2. Stop the server and all related Operations Center services.

  3. Do one of the following:

    • Windows: From the desktop, select Start > Programs > NetIQ Operations Center > Uninstall NetIQ Operations Center.

    • UNIX: From the /OperationsCenter_install_path/Uninstall_NetIQ Operations Center v5 directory, type ./Uninstall_NetIQ_Operations_Center_ v5.

  4. Notice if the installer indicates that the server must be rebooted to complete the uninstall. Click Quit to finish uninstalling Operations Center software and close the window.

  5. If advised in Step 4, reboot the server.

    When uninstalling some features, you will be notified by the installer that a reboot to the server is required to complete some install processes such as removing the Event Manager service. If required, it is important to perform this step before reinstalling Operations Center software.

  6. If necessary, delete the directory where the Operations Center software was installed.

    The Uninstall window might state that not all files were deleted. This is normal, since the Operations Center installation generates some files that are not known to the installer such as logs.
