This chapter describes the actions necessary to remove an existing Oracle Fusion Applications environment from your system. It includes step-by-step instructions and provides important information about the ramifications of taking this action.
This chapter includes the following sections:
During the deinstallation process, components that were installed using the Provisioning Wizard are removed. The database and the LDAP are not removed.
Note the following characteristics of the deinstallation process:
You must run the deinstall process on all hosts. Use the Provisioning Wizard deinstall option for the Primordial host, and the command line option for the Primary host and Secondary host. Products installed from the command line must be deinstalled from the command line.
Start the Provisioning Wizard on the same host (primordial) where you started it at the time of installation. You can monitor the process on all hosts using the primordial host interface.
All binaries, regardless of patch level, are removed.
You cannot partially deinstall an environment by selecting specific components to deinstall.
Always use the provisioning deinstall option (the Provisioning Wizard option or the command line) rather than simply deleting the
APPLICATIONS_CONFIG, and the
oraInventory directories manually. This is especially important for the web tier. Two of its instances share the same
Before you begin the deinstallation process, complete these tasks:
Stop any processes that are running in the environment.
Shut down all Managed Servers, the Administration Server, and the Node Manager on all hosts. If the servers are configured as Windows services, stop the services before deinstalling the software. See "Stopping an Oracle Fusion Applications Environment" in Oracle Fusion Applications Administrator's Guide.
Stop Oracle HTTP Server with this command:
Stop the Oracle Business Intelligence components that are controlled by OPMN with this command:
/bin/opmnctl shutdown. See "Using the OPMN Command Line to Start, Stop, Restart, and View the Status of System Components" in Oracle Fusion Middleware System Administrator's Guide for Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition 11g for more information.
Shut down Global Order Promising (GOP) (if provisioned): (UNIX)
/bin/opmnctl shutdown. To remove the Windows service, run:
sc delete GlobalOrderPromisingServer1.
Stop the Java EE components using Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control. See "Starting and Stopping Java EE Applications Using WLST" in Oracle Fusion Applications Administrator's Guide.
Shut down Informatica Identity Resolution (IIR) (if provisioned) by running these commands in the order listed:
See "Starting and Stopping Components in the Oracle Fusion Applications Environment" in the Oracle Fusion Applications Administrator's Guide for more information.
To perform a deinstallation using the Provisioning Wizard, start the wizard from the primordial host and complete the deinstallation interview screens.
To start the Provisioning Wizard, do the following from the primordial host:
JAVA_HOME environment variable to point to the JDK location in the provisioning repository, for example:
Verify that the LIBPATH value is null.
Run the following command on the primordial host:
On Solaris, use
bash provisioningWizard.sh instead of
Table 6-1 shows the steps necessary to deinstall an Oracle Fusion Applications environment with the Provisioning Wizard. For help with any of the interview screens, see Appendix F or click Help on any Provisioning Wizard interview screen.

Specify Central Inventory Location
This screen displays only if one or more of the following conditions are not met:
Specify the location of the Central Inventory Directory that meets the previous criteria. The
For non-Windows platforms, in the Operating System Group ID field, select or enter the group whose members will be granted access to the inventory directory. All members of this group can install products on this host. Click OK to continue.
The Inventory Location Confirmation dialog prompts you to run the
If you do not have root access on this host but want to continue with the installation, select Continue installation with local inventory and click OK to proceed with the installation.
For Windows platforms, this screen displays if the inventory directory does not meet requirements.
For more information about inventory location files, see "Oracle Universal Installer Inventory" in the Oracle Universal Installer and OPatch User's Guide.
Click Next to continue.
Presents a list of valid installation actions that you can perform using the Provisioning Wizard. Select Deinstall an Applications Environment.
Enter the directory path in the Response File field to the response file associated with the environment you want to deinstall. Or click Browse to navigate to the response file location.
Click Next to continue.
Displays the application and middleware components to be deinstalled. The processes associated with these components must be shut down manually. See Section 6.2 for details.
Click Deinstall to begin deinstalling the applications and middleware components.
The deinstallation process runs on the primordial host. You must deinstall from the command line on any primary or secondary hosts provisioned in your environment. See Section 6.4 for more details.
The following symbols help track the deinstall progress:
Click an x or a Restricted symbol to display information about failures. Select the icon in the Log column to view host-level details. If there is a Log file icon beside a build message, you can select that file to see the details of that build.
Click Next to continue.
Review the list of components removed from this environment. Click Save to create a text file that contains the details.
See Section 6.5 for information about manual tasks necessary to complete the deinstallation process.
Click Finish to dismiss the screen.
If you have provisioned a primary or secondary host, you must run the deinstall on those hosts from the command line, using the same procedure that you used during provisioning. If the primordial host is no longer available, the entire deinstall process must be run from the command line.
Run the deinstall command as
root (with administration privileges) as follows:
If the web tier has been deployed in a DMZ, you must run the Oracle Universal Installer (OUI) manually on that host to deinstall. See Oracle Universal Installer and OPatch User's Guide.
The remaining cleanup tasks are as follows:
If you set up processes to run as a service, then verify the /etc/services file and remove the corresponding Entries from the file.
If you set up processes to run as a service, then verify the /etc/inetd.conf file and remove the corresponding process Entries from the file.
Clean up or remove the
Clean up or remove the application configuration (APPLICATIONS_CONFIG) directory. If you enable local application configuration, you should also clean up or remove the local application configuration directories.
Remove Program Groups. You must also remove Program Groups from the Start Menu\Programs folder.
Reboot your system after you have finished removing all programs.
To delete the database, you can use Database Configuration Assistant (DBCA) to delete an instance of the database and then remove the database software. For more information, see "Deleting a Database Using DBCA" and "Removing Oracle Database Software" in Oracle Database 2 Day DBA.
