Issue



These scripts are to be used when normal uninstallation of the product via the Windows Add/Remove Programs or Programs and Features interface is not possible.  This method of removal is intended to be used as a last resort method of uninstall and should not be used as a replacement for the normal uninstall procedure.


Solution



You can use the attached cleanup.bat to remove the following products:

  • Storage Foundation and High Availability Solutions (version 4.3 MP2 to 5.1 SP2)
  • Veritas Cluster Server for Windows (version 5.1 to 5.1 SP2)
  • Veritas Cluster Server for NetApp SnapMirror (version 4.3 MP2 to 5.0 RP2)
  • Veritas Dynamic Multi-Pathing for Windows (DMP) (version 5.1)

The cleanup.bat script perfors the following actions:

  • Cleans up all SFW, SFW HA, VCS for Windows, or DMP related packages that are currently installed on a system.
  • Deletes all installed files, directories, registry keys, and Windows Add/Remove Program or Programs and Features entries for all the related installed packages.

When to use this script?

Symantec recommends that you uninstall the product using the Windows Add/Remove Programs or Programs and Features "Uninstall or change a program" user interface.
Use the cleanup script only in case of an incomplete or a failed product uninstallation.

Please read the README.txt carefully before use.

Warning:

This script asks for confirmation to remove common infrastructure components used by Symantec products.  Select "NO (N)" if you have other Symantec/Veritas products on the server that do not need to be removed.
