Sun Java Communications Suite 5 Installation Guide

Messaging Server Post-uninstallation

In some cases, the uninstaller might not completely remove the Messaging Server installation files. If a final cleanup is required, do some or all of the following tasks:

  1. Log in as root or become superuser.

  2. Remove the Messaging Server base directory and its contents. By default, the base directory is in the following location:

    • Solaris OS: /opt/SUNWmsgsr

    • Linux: /opt/sun/messaging

  3. Optionally, remove the configuration directory for Messaging Server.

    Caution – Caution –

    Removing the configuration directory will remove all the configuration and data files, including mail messages in the store. Be sure this is the result you want before removing this directory.

    By default, the configuration directory is in the following location:

    • Solaris OS: /var/opt/SUNWmsgsr

    • Linux: /var/opt/sun/messaging

  4. Undo any sendmail configuration for Messaging Server.

  5. On Solaris OS, remove the MessagingServer-base/lib directory from the crle settings. This directory was added to specify that MessagingServer-base/libis a trusted directory for setuid programs. Refer to the crle man page for details.
