Uninstall the Web Server Plug-ins from IBM i operating systems using response files

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

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.

Use Installation Manager, we can work with response files to uninstall the Web Server Plug-ins.

  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. Use a response file to uninstall the Web Server Plug-ins.

    Complete one of the following actions:

    • From a command line on each of the systems from which to uninstall the Web Server Plug-ins, run the uninstall script (which uses the uninstall.xml response file in the same directory) to uninstall the Web Server Plug-ins. For example:

        app_server_root/uninstall/uninstall

    • From a command line on each of the systems from which to uninstall the Web Server Plug-ins, change to the eclipse/tools subdirectory in the directory where you installed Installation Manager and use the uninstall.xml response file in the same directory to uninstall the Web Server Plug-ins. For example:

        ./imcl input app_server_root/uninstall/uninstall.xml -log $HOME/WASFiles/temp/uninstall_log.xml

    • From a command line on each of the systems from which to uninstall the Web Server Plug-ins, change to the eclipse/tools subdirectory in the directory where you installed Installation Manager and use a response file created to uninstall the Web Server Plug-ins from IBM i operating systems. For example:
      ./imcl
        input $HOME/WASFiles/temp/uninstall_response_file.xml    -log $HOME/WASFiles/temp/uninstall_log.xml

      Go to the IBM Installation Manager Version 1.6 Information Center or the IBM Installation Manager Version 1.5 Information Center for more information.

  5. Optional: Uninstall IBM Installation Manager.

    Important: Before we can uninstall IBM Installation Manager, you must uninstall all of the packages that were installed by Installation Manager.

    Read the IBM Installation Manager Version 1.6 Information Center or the IBM Installation Manager Version 1.5 Information Center for information about using the uninstall script to perform this procedure.
