Deinstallation Procedure

To deinstall Enterprise Manager Grid Control, run the following command from the Oracle home of the OMS:

$<ORACLE_HOME>/oui/bin/runInstaller -silent -responseFile <absolute_path_to_response_file> -deinstall "REMOVE_HOMES={absolute_path_to_oracle_homes_and_directories_to_be_deinstalled}" -removeallfiles


For Microsoft Windows, invoke setup.exe. Also, when you runInstaller -help, you will see the option -nowarningonremovefiles listed. This option is currently not supported and has no effect even if you use it.

For the REMOVE_HOMES argument, specify the following to be deinstalled:

For example:

$<ORACLE_HOME>oui/bin/runInstaller -silent -responseFile /scratch/deinstall.rsp -deinstall "REMOVE_HOMES={/u01/app/Oracle/Middleware/oms11g,/u01/app/Oracle/Middleware/agent11g, /u01/app/Oracle/Middleware/Oracle_WT, /u01/app/Oracle/Middleware/oracle_common, /u01/app/Oracle/gc_inst}" -removeallFiles

After You Deinstall

After you deinstall the Oracle homes, follow the steps described in After You Deinstall.
