Uninstalling the application server

Use these tasks to uninstall the BMC Network Automation application server using the interactive BMC Network Automation uninstaller. See Uninstalling silently if you want to uninstall your application server using silent mode.

Before you begin

Back up or move any customized files in the BCAN_DATA directory. These files can be deleted during uninstallation.
