Removing the Mail Security resource instance from the Veritas Cluster Server

Before you uninstall Mail Security from the cluster nodes, you must remove the Mail Security instance and the MountV resource from the Veritas Cluster Server. You must remove the Mail Security shared storage volume to remove the data on the shared storage.

You perform the following tasks from the Veritas Cluster Explorer and the Veritas Enterprise Administrator. See your Veritas Cluster Server documentation for more information about using these tools.

To remove the Mail Security instance from the Veritas Cluster Server

  1. In the Veritas Cluster Explorer, take the SMSMSEVCSClusterResource instance offline on all of the cluster nodes.

    This way you can ensure that Mail Security stops running in the background.

  2. Unlink all of the dependencies from the instance of the SMSMSEVCSClusterResource.

  3. Delete the instance of the SMSMSEVCSClusterResource from the Exchange Service Group.

To remove the MountV resource from the Veritas Cluster Server

  1. In the Veritas Cluster Explorer, unlink the Mail Security MountV (or Mount resource, if you use NetApps) from its dependencies.

  2. Delete the resource from the Exchange Service Group.

To remove data from the shared storage volume

  1. In the Veritas Enterprise Administrator, mount the Mail Security shared storage volume.

  2. Delete the Mail Security volume.

    This way you can remove the shared volume and free up the space in shared storage.

  3. Uninstall Mail Security from each node in the cluster.
