===========================
IV. UNINSTALL INSTRUCTIONS
===========================
1) Close the NetBackup user interfaces.

If a database agent is being used, such as Informix,
ensure that the database services are stopped.

2) Change directory to the patch save directory.
Substitute the pack name for ${PACK} in the following command:

cd /usr/openv/pack/${PACK}/save

3) Run the un-install script:

./Vrts_pack.uninstall

4) Verify that the pack uninstalled successfully by checking
/usr/openv/pack/pack.history.

remote clients using update_dbclients. Please run
update_dbclients after the pack was successfully uninstalled on
the master server.
