IssueThis article demonstrates how to uninstall the RSA Identity Governance & Lifecycle, including the removal of all product files. These steps may be necessary when the wrong Oracle ID has been used for an installation, which will cause the installation to fail. 

Note: The installation requires the numeric value of 500 for the Oracle ID as well as the group id.

  1. Log in as the root user.
  2. Run the uninstaller:

cd /tmp/aveksa/staging/deploy

  1. Change the user and group to the expected IDs:

usermod -u 500 oracle
groupmod -g 500 oinstall

  1. Remove all the spawned files under /tmp without deleting the installation media:

cd /tmp
mv aveksa ..
rm -rf /tmp/*
mv ../aveksa /tmp/
cd aveksa
rm -rf /tmp/aveksa/staging/*

  1. Unpack a fresh copy of the files for staging:

cd staging
tar -jxvf ../packages/aveksa-7.0.0.tar.bz2

  1. Delete the other files and directories that did not live under /tmp that were not removed by the uninstaller:

rm -rf /u01
rm -rf /home/oracle
rm -rf /home/admin
rm /usr/local/bin/coraenv
rm /usr/local/bin/dbhome

rm /usr/local/bin/oraenv

  1. Delete the admin user and his home directory (which will be created on the next installation attempt)

userdel -r admin
