A clean up script for Solaris UNIX systems after a failed uninstallation of Command Central Storage (CCS) all versions.

Solution



Some guidelines regarding the Command Central Storage cleanup script for
Solaris OS platforms:

What does the cleanup.sh script do?

1.  It is designed to remove Solaris UNIX packages from the Solaris platform only.  It is provided for Command Central Storage (CCS) primarily.
2.  It will attempt to remove any package with a package name beginning with VRTS.  Therefore, other Symantec products can be removed also.
3.  This tool should only be used in cases where a normal uninstallation of CCS has aborted or failed.
4.  This script utilizes the UNIX command pkgrm.  It will not remove packages that cannot normally be removed by this command.  
5.  It will identify all "VRTS" packages that are installed and then interactively allows the operator to remove or not remove each package found.

To install the cleanup.sh script:

1.  Copy the file SolTotalCleanup.tar.gz to a directory on the system to be cleaned up.
2.  Uncompress the file as follows:
       #  gzip -d  SolTotalCleanup.tar.gz
3.  Unarchive the file SolTotalCleanup.tar
       #  tar xvf SolTotalCleanup.tar
4.  Make sure the file has execute permissions as follows:
       #  chmod 777 cleanup.sh
To run the cleanup.sh utility:
1.  start the utility on the command line as follows:
       #  ./cleanup.sh
2.  Follow the instructions that appear from the pkgrm command for each package identified.
