Product Component Dependencies from Remote Hosts

Some product component dependencies can be satisfied with product components deployed on remote hosts. The uninstaller does not recognize these dependency relationships.

For example, if you uninstall Directory Server, the uninstaller does not warn you that Access Manager depends on Directory Server, even if both products are deployed on the same host. This is because another Directory Server instance on another host could support Access Manager.
