Uninstalling the Siebel Web Server Extension

Use the following procedure to perform a full uninstallation of Siebel Web Server Extension (SWSE) software on a single computer. Uninstalling SWSE is similar to uninstalling the Siebel Enterprise Server.

NOTE:  If you use the method described in this topic to perform a rollback 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 Web Server Extension.

This topic is part of Uninstalling Siebel Enterprise Server or Siebel Web Server Extension.

Process of Removing Configuration Data

To uninstall the Siebel Web Server Extension

  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 Web Server Extension, you must perform the Configuration Wizard task to remove existing SWSE configuration data. For more information, see Process of Removing Configuration Data.

  3. Open a new shell.
  4. Navigate to the $SIEBEL_ROOT/sweapp/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 Web Server Extension installation.

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

    The Siebel Web Server Extension 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.

Restoring a Web Server After Uninstalling the SWSE

After uninstalling your SWSE, you can restore your Web server by using the following procedure.

To restore your Web server

  1. Copy all of the backup configuration files, which were created during the installation and are referenced in the following example, to their original location under the Web server directory.


    For example:


    • AIX, HP-UX, and Linux
      • conf/httpd.conf
      • conf/mime.types
    • Oracle Solaris
      • start
      • config/mime.types
      • config/obj.conf
      • config/magnus.conf
  2. (HP-UX only) Reset any existing LANG variable to the directory that the symbolic link represents. If the environment variable LANG is set to a directory name that is a symbolic link, then the uninstaller will fail.

    NOTE:  The LANG variable cannot be set to univ.utf8. This setting causes the uninstaller to fail.

  3. Remove additional files that were created on the Web server as a result of installing the SWSE, particularly if you are uninstalling a previous version of SWSE.

    For example, for IBM HTTP Server, you might have to remove the library file from the modules subdirectory of the Web server installation directory. Otherwise, when you later install a more recent version of SWSE (such as the current version), the newer version of this file does not overwrite the existing file.
