    Uninstall/Reinstall RSCD Agent

    Bill Bruncati

      Running BL 8.1.03 on Solaris 10 Sparc . Is there any way to reinstall the RSCD Agent on an Appserver ?

       

      Using "Uninstall" wants to remove everything including the Appserver . I want to remove and reinstall the Agent only.

       

      I've tried re-running RSCD81-SP3-SOL10-SPARC.sh but that gives:

       

      A previous installation already exists.

      Do you wish to continue (y/n) ? y

      A new version of the product has been detected, aborting install.

       

      Also tried editing the "Version" file to take out the RSCD and NSH references

      but that didn't help.

       

      Thanks,

      wbrunc

          Never mind. Removing the /usr/lib/rsc dir allowed me to reinstall.

            Why do you need to reinstall just the agent?

              Hey hiii,

                           Please follow the path and execute this command:: cd /opt/bmc/BladeLogic/8.0/NSH/Uninstall.

              it will Uninstall your previous RSCD agent, and then go to just go into:: cd /usr/lib/rsc and fire the command

               

              rm -rf secure exports users users.local

               

              it will remove all these above directories. and then now go into :: cd /opt and here again fire the above command by following syntax::

               

              rm -rf bmc

               

              now your RSCD agent is completely uninstall from your server. now you can perform re-installation.

               

              Thanks,

                Won’t that also uninstall the agent on the appserver?

                  Ohh Yeah, Actually i forgot it was on app server. i was concentrated on target server...while i was writing my thoughts.

                   

                  Thanks

                      the presence of the pkPostInstall indicates that this is probably a packaged install (rpm) so you should use rpm to uninstall the rscd rpm.
