Using silent mode to uninstall product components

This topic provides instructions for uninstalling BMC Server Automation in silent mode.

  • To uninstall the BMC Server Automation Console in silent mode, you must specify various options through an options file. This procedure can be performed on the Microsoft Windows, Linux and UNIX platforms.
  • Uninstallation of other product components in silent mode (including the Application Server, Network Shell, and RSCD Agent) can be performed on Linux or UNIX platforms, and does not require any additional options.

To uninstall the console in silent mode on Windows or on Linux or UNIX

  1. In a text editor, create an options file and specify the options you want to uninstall. For example:
    -U featureClientUtilities
    -U featureNetworkShell
    -U featureConfigurationManagerConsole
    -U Uninstalls the product or feature.
  2. Run the uninstall program using the -i silent option.
    <uninstallProgram> -i silent -DOPTIONS_FILE="<silentOptionsFilePath>"
    Use an absolute path to the options file. Enclose the path in double quotation marks (" ").

    Windows example

    uninstall.exe -i silent -DOPTIONS_FILE="C:\Program Files\BMC Software\BladeLogic\silent_uninstall.txt"

    UNIX example

    ./uninstall -i silent -DOPTIONS_FILE="/opt/bmc/bladelogic/silent_uninstall.txt"

To uninstall other components in silent mode on Linux or UNIX

Use the following command to invoke uninstallation of the BMC Server Automation Application Server, Network Shell, or RSCD Agent:

<installDir>/NSH/Uninstall -silent
