Uninstalling v7.1 on Solaris

P: n/a

Hi all,

On my machine, someone had previously installed the trial version of
db2 v7.1. I don't have the image anymore and hence don't have
db2_deinstall. How can I cleanly remove it off the system?

Thanks

Assuming you've dropped or migrated your instances and your das, if you
have/had one, the next step is to simply use pkgrm to remove all the v7
packages.

pkglist | grep db2.*71

That will show you what packages to remove. If you go through that list
removing each one, many will fail because there will be packages requiring
them. That's ok - just keep going through the dwindling list until they're
all gone.

That may not be the most efficient way from the perspective of the computer,
but it will work with the least amount of effort from you.

Thanks Darin,

I did a pkginfo | grep db2.*71 and removed all the packages listed
there.

Thanks!
