Before uninstalling the application server, stop both the node agent and application server.


Using the command line

List the installed packages. In this example, there are 3 installed packages.

~]# cd /opt/IBM/InstallationManager/eclipse/tools
~]# ./imcl listInstalledPackages -long
/opt/IBM/InstallationManager/eclipse : com.ibm.cic.agent_1.8.5000.20160506_1125
/opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer : com.ibm.java.jdk.v8_8.0.5007.20171218_1035
/opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer : com.ibm.websphere.BASE.v90_9.0.6.20171205_1311

 

In this example, the BASE (application server) and Java JDK are uninstalled. Instead of -showProgress, the -silent option can be used to not display any output during the uninstall.

~]# ./imcl uninstall 
  com.ibm.websphere.BASE.v90_9.0.6.20171205_1311
  com.ibm.java.jdk.v8_8.0.5007.20171218_1035
  -installationDirectory /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer
  -showProgress

 

Upon completion of the uninstall, the following text should be displayed.

Uninstalled com.ibm.java.jdk.v8_8.0.5007.20171218_1035 from the /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer directory 
Uninstalled com.ibm.websphere.BASE.v90_9.0.6.20171205_1311 from the /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer directory

 

After the uninstall, there will still be some files and directories left over. If you are absolutely certain that you will have no need for the left over files and directories, removed the left over files and directories.

~]# rm -rf /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer

 


Using Installation Manager

In Installation Manager, select Uninstall.

 

Checkmark the application server and select Next.

 

Select Uninstall.

 

When the uninstall has completed, select Finish.

 

After the application server has been uninstalled, there will still be some files and directories left over. If you are absolutely certain that you will have no need for the left over files and directories, removed the left over files and directories.

~]# rm -rf /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer
