Recap on Deinstall Routines

A few weeks ago I'Ve posted something about the deinstall utility as OUI doesn't offer a "deinstall software" option anymore:
How to deinstall "old" SW after 11.2.0.2 has been applied?

And I've got some feedback (which is a good sign as it means that some of the content might be useful and will be read - and from the follow-up you see that we'll read your comments and emails as well :-) ).

Anyway, the feedback was either CRS deinstall does not work the right way or deinstall cleans up too many things. So Roy did follow up with our (very helpful and fast-responding) installer colleagues (Thanks a lot, Matt, Sudheendra & Anesh!!!) - and that's their response:


Per documentation http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E11882_01/install.112/e17212/procstop.htm#CEGGHAFG users are supposed to do the following :

1. #chmod -R 755 oldGH (GH stands for 'Grid Home')
2. #chown -R swowner oldGH
3. #chown swowner oldGHParent

There is step #4, which is to use "11.2.0.2 standalone deinstall tool" (MyOracleSupport 11.2.0.2 patch set download!!!) to remove 'old' (or 11.2.0.1) Grid home. This step is missing right now and I have asked the doc folks to update it.

Also, this will be fixed in 11.2.0.3 and later (this issue is tracked by bug 9924588).
