Uninstall the Web Server Plug-ins from IBM i operating systems using the command line

We can uninstall the Web Server Plug-ins from IBM i operating systems using the Installation Manager command line.

Remove the plug-ins will break communication between any web servers and their associated application servers. Be sure to unconfigure any web and applications servers that are using these plug-ins before uninstalling them.

  1. Stop all servers and applications on the WAS installations containing the Web Server Plug-ins.

  2. Sign on to the IBM i system with a user profile that has *ALLOBJ and *SECADM special authorities.

  3. On a CL command line, run the STRQSH command to start the Qshell command shell.

  4. Change to the eclipse/tools subdirectory in the directory where you installed Installation Manager.

  5. Use the imcl command to uninstall the product.

    For example:

    ./imcl uninstall com.ibm.websphere.PLG.v85
      -installationDirectory installation_directory

    For more information on using the imcl command to uninstall the product, see the IBM Installation Manager Version 1.6 Information Center or the IBM Installation Manager Version 1.5 Information Center.
