Uninstalling individual cloud products and the cloud solution
This topic describe how to uninstall individual BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management products as well as the entire BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management solution (sometimes called the cloud stack). It contains the following information:
To uninstall individual cloud products
BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management contain individual executables that you can use to uninstall products individually.
- Open the host where you installed the product.
- Change directories to the installation directory.
For example, navigate to C:\Program Files\BMC Software\BMCCloudLifeCycleManagement\UninstallBMCCloudLifeCycleManagement.
- Double-click the executable.
The product uninstaller is displayed in the following screenshot:
- Navigate through the panels of the uninstaller until the product is successfully installed.
You can use the uninstall executable as needed to uninstall individual cloud products. No particular order is required, as long as the working integrity of the entire cloud stack is no longer important to you. Typically you would uninstall a product during the cloud stack installation process itself, for example, you installed the AR System Server on a host and you needed to uninstall it for some reason.
To uninstall the cloud solution by re-provisioning the product hosts
BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management does not provide a program to uninstall the entire cloud stack. To uninstall the entire BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management stack, re-provision the product hosts instead:
- Take the product hosts offline.
You can do this in any order.
- Re-provision the hosts.
For example, the VMware vSphere documentation describes multiple ways to re-provision a host. Use the option that best applies to your situation.
- Verify that there are no existing BMC applications after you re-provision the hosts.
If you plan to re-use the hosts with BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management, no existing applications should be present.
