Uninstalling encryption security
These instructions assume that you have installed or upgraded to BMC Remedy Action Request System.
By design, if more than one BMC Remedy AR System component was encrypted using the BMC Remedy Encryption Security installer, and you attempt to uninstall encryption from only one component, the encryption unistaller will be available to uninstall the remaining components.
