Uninstalling the Siebel Enterprise Server

Use the following procedure to perform a full uninstallation of Siebel Enterprise Server software on a single computer.

NOTE:  If you use the method described in this topic to perform a rollback uninstallation rather than a full uninstallation, then you do not remove configuration data first. Use this method only when it is appropriate, so that you do not perform a full uninstallation by mistake. See also Rolling Back the Siebel Enterprise Server.

Process of Removing Configuration Data

To uninstall the Siebel Enterprise Server components

  1. Review all of the information in About Uninstalling Siebel Business Applications, particularly the requirements and limitations.
  2. Verify that you have performed any required tasks to uninstall other modules or remove configuration data.

    NOTE:  For example, before you uninstall an instance of Siebel Enterprise Server, particularly one that includes Siebel Gateway Name Server, you must perform all of the applicable Configuration Wizard tasks to remove existing configuration data. For more information, see Process of Removing Configuration Data.

  3. Open a new shell.
  4. Navigate to the $SIEBEL_ROOT/ses/oui/bin directory.
  5. Start the Oracle Universal Installer software using the following command:

    ./runInstaller -deinstall -jreLoc jre_location -invPtrLoc inventory_location


    • jre_location is the full path of the installed Java Runtime Environment (JRE) software. On AIX, you must use the -jreLoc option. It is not required on other operating systems. For more information about the JRE requirements for AIX, see Requirements Specific to UNIX or Linux Operating Systems.
    • inventory_location is the full path of the oraInst.loc file (for example, /export/home/oraInst.loc), which points to the Oracle Universal Installer inventory location. Use the
      -invPtrLoc option if you want to specify an inventory pointer file other than the default.

      This action starts the instance of Oracle Universal Installer that was installed with your Siebel Enterprise Server installation.

  6. Click Installed Products.
  7. In the Inventory dialog box, select the Oracle Home value (for example, SES_HOME) representing the installed instance of Siebel Enterprise Server software that you want to uninstall.
  8. Click Remove.
  9. Click Yes to confirm that you want to uninstall this Siebel Enterprise Server and all of its dependent components on the same computer.

    The Siebel Enterprise Server software is uninstalled from this computer.

  10. In the Inventory dialog box, click Close.
  11. In the Oracle Universal Installer window, click Cancel.
  12. Restart your server.
