These topics describe how to remove Oracle software and configuration files.
You can remove Oracle software in one of two ways: Use Oracle Universal Installer with the
deinstall option, or use the deinstallation tool (
deinstall) that is included in Oracle homes. Oracle does not support the removal of individual products or components.
If you have a standalone database on a node in a cluster, and if you have multiple databases with the same global database name (GDN), then you cannot use the deinstall tool to remove one database only.
