This practice shows how to uninstall Oracle Database Vault from an Oracle Database installation for PDBs (but not the CDB root) and Oracle RAC installations.
The uninstallation process does not affect the initialization parameter settings, even those settings that were modified during the installation process, nor does it affect Oracle Label Security.
Before starting any new practice, refer to the Practices Environment recommendations.
