Sun N1 System Manager 1.3 Operating System Provisioning Guide

ProcedureTo Uninstall an OS Update From a Managed Server

Before You Begin
  1. Log in to the N1 System Manager.

    See To Access the N1 System Manager Command Line in Sun N1 System Manager 1.3 Discovery and Administration Guide for details.

  2. Uninstall an OS update from a managed server.

    N1-ok> unload server server[,server...] update update

    Caution – Caution –

    If the user-specified update name is not found, the command tries to uninstall an OS update with a matching file name. The show update command enables you to list an OS update's corresponding file name.

    See unload server in Sun N1 System Manager 1.3 Command Line Reference Manual for details.


If you cannot uninstall an OS update that was installed with an admin file, check that the package file name matches the name of the package. If the name is not the same, rename the admin file in the managed server's /tmp directory to match the name of the package and try the unload command again. If the package still exists, remove it from the managed server by using pkgrm.
