30.9 Removing a 10g WebGate from the Access Manager 11g Deployment

You can remove the 10g WebGate from the Access Manager 11g deployment, if needed.ss


Deleting an agent registration does not remove the associated host identifier, Application Domain, resources, or the agent instance.


Web Server Configuration Changes: Web server configuration changes must be manually reverted after uninstalling the WebGate). For more information about what is added, see the appropriate chapter for your Web server.

WebGate IIS Filters: To fully remove a WebGate and related filters from IIS, you must do more than simply remove the filters from the list in IIS. IIS retains all of its settings in a metabase file. On Windows 2000 and later, this is an XML file that can be modified by hand.


Evaluate the Application Domain, resources, and policies associated with this agent and ensure that these are configured to use another agent or that they can be removed.

To uninstall the 10g WebGate:

  1. Turn off the Web server for the WebGate you will remove.


    If you don't turn off the Web server, uninstall might fail and the backup folder will not be removed. If this happens, you need to manually remove the backup folder.

  2. On the WebGate registration page in the Oracle Access Management Console, click the Disable box beside the State option to disable the WebGate.
  3. Language Packs: Remove installed Language Packs (except the one selected as the default Administrator language (locale)) as follows:
    • Locate the appropriate Language Pack file in the component's uninstall directory. For example:

      • WebGate_install_dir\uninstIdentityLP_fr-fr
      • \uninstaller.exe
    • Run the Language Pack Uninstaller program to remove the files.

    • Repeat this process to remove the same Language Pack from associated components.

    • Stop and restart WebGate Web server to re-initialize proper language support.

    • Repeat this process to remove each Language Pack (except the one selected as the default Administrator language (locale)).

  4. Perform the following steps to remove 10g WebGate configuration data:
    • If you have only one instance of an Access Manager component, complete step 4 to remove it.

    • If you have multiple instances of a component, see also step 5.

  5. Locate and run the Uninstaller program for the specific component to remove Access Manager files. For example:



    On UNIX systems, use uninstaller.bin

  6. Multiple Instances: If you have multiple WebGate instances and want to remove one or all of them, you must use a specific method for your platform:
    • Windows: The last component can be uninstalled from Add/Remove programs. Others can be uninstalled by running the uninstall program from the \access \uninstComponent directory.

    • UNIX: You must always run uninstaller.bin.

  7. Remove Access Manager-related updates to your Web server configuration.
  8. Restart the Web server.
  9. Remove the WebGate_install_dir directory if it remains, especially if you plan to reinstall it.
