Before uninstalling, stop any component that you intend to remove, for example an instance of the TDI Runtime, an AMC service that is running, or a Password Synchronization plug-in. Not stopping running components may cause some files to not be removed (to remain after the uninstallation). On Windows, a restart may be required and the TDI Web Admin (AMC) service may remain in the Services list, requiring manual deletion.
For Windows platforms, the uninstall executable file is called uninstaller.exe. For all other platforms, the uninstall executable file is called uninstaller.bin, except for i5/OS where it is called uninstaller.sh.
Attention: During an uninstall, a number of directories on the computer are emptied and removed. These are:
To perform a silent uninstallation of IBM TDI you must first generate a response file. To generate this file, perform a full GUI or console uninstallation with the -options-record option specified; for example:
TDI_install_dir/_uninst/uninstaller.exe -r UninstallResponseFileName
The response file is created in the directory that you specify during uninstallation.
The directory TDI_install_dir/examples/install contains a number of example response files for various installation or uninstallation scenarios.
Once the response file is created, you can uninstall silently using the following command:
TDI_install_dir/_uninst/uninstaller.exe -f UninstallResponseFileName
The examples in this document use the Windows platform uninstallation executable file.
