Oracle VM Manager 3.3 and Above Uninstallation

Applicable for Oracle VM Release 3.3 and above
The ability to quickly rebuild, remove and restore Oracle VM Manager is an essential Oracle VM lifecycle operation. If the goal of an Oracle VM Manager uninstall is to start over without the need to preserve previous Oracle VM server pools, simply uninstall and reinstall Oracle VM Manager. If the goal is to recover Oracle VM Manager, with previous Oracle VM server pools, reset or uninstall and reinstall Oracle VM Manager using the UUID restore switch. A UUID Oracle VM Manager installation can be done with or without an Oracle VM Manager Database repository schema backup and restore operation. If the intent is to restore Oracle VM Manager database schema, an Oracle VM Manager uninstall may not be necessary. Regardless of the Oracle VM Manager uninstall intent, it is necessary to completely uninstall each of the Oracle VM Manager components.
The next example shows the steps to perform a Oracle VM Manager 3.3 uninstall.
  • Download the Oracle VM Manager installation media (not source) from the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud - Oracle Linux and Oracle VM portal.
  • Copy the Oracle VM Manager installation media to a directory on the Oracle VM Manager host.
  • Log in to the Oracle VM Manager host as root, and unzip the file.
  • Mount the ISO file by typing “mount -o loop <FILE NAME>.iso /mnt”
  • Change to the /mnt directory, i.e. “cd /mnt.
  • Verify that host name in the /etc/hosts file is associated with the server's public IP address.
  • Run the installer script as root, by typing “./”

Note: To be able to reinstall Oracle VM Manager, it is necessary to uninstall all of the Oracle VM Manager componients.
