Installation Problems

Most installation errors involve failure to carefully follow pre-installation instructions. The following table describes some common installation problems, what may have caused them, and what you should do to correct the problem. Note that installation and configuration actions are captured in two different log files that you can examine to assist in troubleshooting efforts:

Deinstalling Oracle CM SDK

To deinstall Oracle CM SDK, you must run the Oracle Universal Installer, as follows:

  1. Logon using the account that installed and configured Oracle CM SDK. Typically, this is an account called "oracle" or the Administrator account.

  2. Stop the domain and nodes. For HTTP nodes, stop their OC4J processes.

  3. Shut down all protocol servers and agents using the appropriate command for your release of the product:

    Release Command

    Oracle Internet File System 1.0


    Oracle Internet File System 1.1.x


    Oracle Internet File System 9.0.1, 9.0.2


    (Or, use the Oracle Enterprise Manager Console to stop the domain and all nodes.)

    Oracle Content Management SDK 9.0.3

    ORACLE_HOME\ifs\cmsdk\bin\ifsctl stop

    (Or, use the Oracle Enterprise Manager Console to stop the domain and all nodes.)

  1. Allow some time for all processes to stop.

  2. Launch the Oracle Universal Installer (setup.exe) from the command prompt:

    C:\Program Files\Oracle\oui\install\setup
  3. On the Welcome page, click the Deinstall Products button. The Inventory page displays.

  4. On the Inventory page, click the ORACLE_HOME directory to display all installed components. Oracle CM SDK should be included in the list.

  5. Select Oracle CM SDK from the list and then click Remove.

  6. Click Yes to confirm the Oracle CM SDK deinstallation. The software components will all be removed, and in a moment, the Oracle Universal Installer redisplays.

  7. Click the Close button.

  8. Exit the Oracle Universal Installer.

  9. To completely remove the Oracle CM SDK directory from the computer, you must logon as the Windows NT/2000 Administrator (or oracle) and delete the contents of the ORACLE_HOME\ifs directory manually.
