Cleanly uninstalling SGD

Just a quick tip on uninstalling and cleaning up an SGD server...
To uninstall SGD you can use the native packaging mechanisms
Solaris - pkgrm tta
Linux - rpm -e tta

or you can use:

/opt/tarantella/bin/tarantella uninstall

This leaves configuration data behind which may be useful if you spent time configuring lots of objects.
But if you want a really clean uninstall use:

/opt/tarantella/bin/tarantella uninstall --purge

Also don't forget to remove any Enhancement Modules that you may have installed either on the application servers or the SGD server if you used that as an app server too.
pkgrm tem
rpm -e tem

And finally, to remove all trace, you may want to get rid of the ttaserv, ttasys users and group.

Comments:

pkgrm rpm should be used as a last resort. A tarantella uninstall <--purge> is the preferred method.

Not sure why you'd want to uninstall SGD, it's a great product.

Unfortunately, I've had to uninstall --purge several times on a several different machines after unexplained failures rendered SGD unusable.

Love the way the product works, hate the way it sometimes suddenly flakes out, crashes, and won't come back up...

Fighting with a fresh install right now where the jserver keeps crashing... :(
