|Oracle® Audit Vault Server Installation Guide
Release 10.2.3 for Linux x86
Part Number E11055-02
This chapter describes the process of removing the Audit Vault Server software.
To remove Audit Vault Server software, all Audit Vault Agents must be stopped if the Audit Vault Agent software is installed on the same system as the Audit Vault Server software. See Oracle Audit Vault Collection Agent Installation Guide for more information.
Stop the Audit Vault Console using the
avctl stop_av command.
This command performs an emctl stop dbconsole operation. For example:
$ avctl stop_av
In an Oracle RAC environment, run that command on all nodes where Audit Vault is installed if you are removing the Audit Vault Server from all nodes.
Shutdown the Audit Vault database and stop the listener.
Perform the following steps:
Log into Oracle Enterprise Manager Database Control as SYS user, enter the SYS user password, and select connect as SYSOPER
On the Database instance Home page, click Shutdown to shutdown the Audit Vault database.
To stop the listener click the Listener link, then on the Listener page, click Stop.
As an alternative, you can also log in to the Audit Vault database and shut it down, as follows:
sqlplus /nolog SQL*Plus: Release 10.2.0.3.0 - Production on Thu Dec 13 22:45:27 2007 Copyright (c) 1982, 2006, Oracle. All Rights Reserved. SQL> connect sys as sysoper Enter password: <sysoperpassword> Connected. SQL> shutdown immediate; SQL> exit
In an Oracle RAC environment, run the following command from the local node:
$ORACLE_HOME/bin/srvctl stop database –d <AV database name> -q Connect String: sys as sysdba Enter password: <sysdbapassword>
Then stop the listener.
Look in the
listener.ora file to check the name of the listener. It might be
LISTENER1 or some other name, but usually it is
LISTENER. For example:
lsnrctl stop <listener name>
In an Oracle RAC environment, run that stop listener command on all nodes where Audit Vault is installed if you are removing the Audit Vault Server from all nodes.
Uninstall the Audit Vault Server by running the following command in the Audit Vault Server home directory. For example:
Note:Before removing the Audit Vault Server software, first use the DBCA "Delete a database" option to select and delete the database. See Oracle Database 2 Day DBA and Oracle Database Oracle Clusterware and Oracle Real Application Clusters Administration and Deployment Guide for more information about using DBCA to delete a database.
Click Deinstall Products to bring up the Oracle Inventory screen.
Select the Oracle homes and the products that you want to remove by selecting the desired check boxes, then click Remove.
Clean up the old Oracle directories.
On systems where Oracle Audit Vault is the only Oracle software installed, go to the directory for
oracle, and remove the directory using the
rm -r command. Otherwise, delete the Audit Vault Server home.
Issue the following command to confirm there is no other Oracle home installed.
$ grep 'HOME NAME' OraInventory/ContentsXML/inventory.xml
In an Oracle RAC environment, perform these operations on all nodes where Audit Vault is installed if you are removing the Audit Vault Server from all nodes.
