Communications Express Uninstallation Behavior

Table 8–6 Communications Express Uninstallation Details



Configuration Data and User Data 

All configuration data, user data and UI customizations remain after uninstallation. 

Communications Express files are maintained in two locations: 

Package Installation by default: 

Solaris OS: /opt/SUNWuwc

Linux: /opt/sun/uwc

Application Deployment created by default during configuration:
