User-added image
Cause
  • Uninstalling the web tier does not always remove the installation files from the old install directory of the web tier.
  • If you check the installation path after uninstalling the web tier, you will find the files are still present.
  • Reinstalling the web tier does not overwrite all existing files, which causes a partial installation.
Resolution

Uninstalling the web tier



  1. Uninstall the web tier using the uninstall executable in the ../uninstall directory.
  2. After the uninstaller finishes, delete the old install directory manually.

  • If you are using a Linux server for the web tier, run the following command as root, using the path to the actual web tier install directory:


rm -rf <WebTier_Install_Dir>


For example,



rm -rf /opt/RSASecurity/


  • If you are using a Windows server for the web tier, run the following command as an administrator from the command line, using the path to the actual web tier install directory::


RD /S /Q "<WebTier_Install_Dir>"


For example,



RD /S /Q "C:\Program Files\RSASecurity"


  1. Reboot the web tier server.
  2. Generate the new web tier package.
  3. Proceed with the reinstall.
