Pre-Uninstallation Tasks 

Verify that Directory Server and the web container are running. If the web container is Web Server, Web Server admin server must be running. 

Post-Uninstallation Tasks 

  • If you are running Portal Server within Web Server and you choose to remove Portal Server only, you must restart Access Manager. For more information, refer to Access Manager Post-uninstallation Issues

  • If Portal Server is deployed to the IBM WebSphere web container, there might be additional uninstallation tasks.
