How to uninstall DB2 Connect v. 7?

P: n/a
Hi all,

I am very new to DB2 Connect (it was basically dropped in my lap).
I've been tasked with installing DB2 Connect v 8.1 FP 3 onto an AIX
5.1 server. That server currently has a installation of DB2 Connect
v. 7 on it. I've stopped the processes associated with the version 7
installation and now I want to uninstall the product cleanly prior to
installing v. 8. Does anyone know how to do this?

Thanks!

AIX allows them to coexist. Highly recommended since you don't need to
shut down anything prior to installing and testing v8.

After everything is moved to v8, you can deinstall v7 by running
"installp -u db2_07_01".

Hi Darin,

First off, thanks so much for responding to my post.

Actually Version 7 is not being used by anyone so I'd prefer to remove
it before installing v. 8. so I can recoup some space. When I logon
to the box as root and run the installp -u db2_07_01 command under
/home/db2inst3 I receive the following error

Pre-installation Failure/Warning
Summary----------------------------------------Name
Level Pre-installation
Failure/Warning-------------------------------------------------------------------------------db2_07_01
Nothing by this name to deinstall

I receive the same error when I tried using the directory name where
the install is located, ie: db2inst3
Any ideas?

Thanks,

Mary Jane
