Deinstall GoldenGate 12.2

Filed under: GoldenGate — mdinh @ 7:59 am

I always like to know how to remove software installation in the event I am not happy with how it was installed.

GoldenGate Home is at /u01/app/oracle/12.2/ggs01

Thinking of may be using the same directory structures as Grid Infrastructure, i.e. /u01/app/ with full release version.

$ ls -ld deinstall/
drwxr-xr-x. 2 oracle oinstall 4096 Apr  4 00:24 deinstall/

$ cd deinstall/

$ ls

$ ./

ALERT: Ensure all the processes running from the current Oracle Home are shutdown prior to running this software uninstallation script.

Proceed with removing Oracle GoldenGate home: /u01/app/oracle/12.2/ggs01 (yes/no)? [no]
