2. Replace original databases and remove Enterprise Vault files:
 
a.  Stop the Domino mail server.
 
b.  Copy original versions of Forms6.nsf, Forms7.nsf and Forms8.nsf back to the folder \Program Files\Lotus\Domino\Data\iNotes.

ev_dwa7.ntf
 
ev_inotes6.ntf
 
ev_mail6.ntf

Removing Enterprise Vault from an Enterprise Vault Domino Gateway server

2. Replace original databases and remove Enterprise Vault files:

If the files evhelp.nsf and evhelp.ntf are also present in \Program Files\Lotus\Domino\Data, delete them.
 

 
d.  Delete all files named *evhelp.nsf from \Program Files\Lotus\Domino\Data\help.
 
e.  Delete the Enterprise Vault data folder EV and its contents. The folder is typically installed to the following path:

EVRT.dll
 

 
g.  Check that the Enterprise Vault uninstallation process has deleted the following files from the \Program Files\Lotus\Domino\Data folder, and delete them if they are present:
 
EVAttach.ntf
 
EVInstall.nsf
 

 
3. Check that the Enterprise Vault uninstallation process has modified the file notes.ini as follows. Edit the file if necessary:

 
a.  EVDominoHousekeeping should be removed from the ServerTasks line.
 

 
b.  ExtMgr_Addins=EVDominoEM.dll should be removed.
 

Access control lists (ACLs) for journal databases and for users' mail files that are enabled for archiving have an entry for the “generic Domino archiving user”, which can be removed.
