Saving a response file and removing the product

You can save a response file to tell the IBM® InfoSphere® Information Server removal program how to perform a software removal by using your saved configuration information. Saving a response file is important if you want to cancel the current removal session and use the response file in a later session.


  1. In the software removal wizard, specify a name and location for the response file in the Response file location field (at this point, you can choose to cancel the removal and use the saved response file in a later session).
  2. Click Remove IBM InfoSphere Information Server and save my settings in a response file, and then click Next to begin the product removal.
    The program displays a summary of the choices that you made in the wizard. As the removal proceeds, the software removal program reports the progress in the window.
    Consider these conditions while the software removal program is running:
    • Leave the command prompt open until the software removal is complete.
    • After you have started the software removal process, keep the web browser open to monitor progress. If errors occur, the uninstallation continues. If you close the web browser, the software removal process continues to the end. You can reconnect to the session by opening a new web browser to the same URL. You can also monitor progress by reading the log files.
    • Microsoft Windows: Depending on your security settings, warning windows might display during the removal of the IBM Db2® database system or other components. Ignore the warnings, and click OK to continue the removal process.
