To uninstall the Cisco DCNM-SAN applications on a Microsoft Windows PC, follow these steps:

Detailed Steps


Step 1 Close all running instances of Cisco DCNM-SAN and Device Manager.

Step 2 Select Start > Programs > Cisco DCNM Server > Uninstall_DCNM.

Alternatively, you can run the following executable file:

INSTALL_DIR\dcm\dcnm\Uninstall_DCNM\Uninstall DCNM.exe
 
   

where the default INSTALL_DIR value is C:\Program Files\Cisco Systems.

Step 3 Click Uninstall.

Step 4 Click Done.


Note If you have installed Cisco DCNM-SAN or Device Manager on Windows Vista, you may see the application shortcuts on your desktop even after uninstalling the application. To remove the shortcuts, you need to refresh the desktop.



Note If the DCNM-SAN Client fails to uninstall with an error message, you may need to remove the DCNM-SAN Client from cache using Java Cache Viewer. To remove DCNM-SAN Client from cache, select Start > Run and enter javaws -viewer. Select DCNM-SAN Client in the java cache viewer and click delete.



Note For older installations, delete the .cisco_mds9000 folder. Manually delete all desktop icons and program menu items.

On a Windows PC, this folder is created under the Documents and Settings folder (for example, d:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\.cisco_mds9000 if you had installed it as user Administrator). On a UNIX machine, the default installation folder is /usr/bin.



To uninstall the DCNM-SAN applications on a UNIX machine, use the Uninstall_DCNM script, as follows:

sh Uninstall_DCNM 

You can find this script in your home folder or the folder that you specified when setting up the link folder during your installation of Cisco DCNM-SAN.


Note For all releases starting with Release 2.x, run the shell script
$HOME/cisco_mds9000/Uninstall.sh or /usr/local/cisco_mds9000/uninstall.sh, depending on where DCNM-SAN was installed. You can find this script in your home folder or the folder that you specified when setting up the link folder during your installation of Cisco DCNM-SAN.



Note To uninstall DCNM-SAN Federated Server, on a windows machine, run the batch file $TOPDIR/Uninstall.bat on each server node.
