Uninstalling the Linux x86_64 client
You can use the following procedure to uninstall the IBM Spectrum® Protect Linux® x86_64 client.
Before you begin
To uninstall a previously installed IBM Spectrum Protect client package, enter the following commands to remove the packages for the web user interface, journal-based backup, the filepath component, the backup-archive client, the API, and the IBM® Global Security Kit (GSKit).
To uninstall the journal-based backup components only, remove both packages (journal-based
backup and filepath). The TIVsm-JBB package depends on the filepath package. If
you use two separate rpm -e commands to uninstall the components one at a time,
uninstall the TIVsm-JBB package first.
rpm -e TIVsm-JBB TIVsm-filepath
To remove the package that performs file-restore operations by using the web user interface,
enter the following command:
rpm -e TIVsm-WEBGUI
Uninstall the backup-archive client packages:
Note: If language packages are installed in a Version 7.1.2 or earlier client, you must remove them before you remove the API package. Enter the following command, and replace xx_xx with the language code for each additional language that you installed. For a list of language code identifiers, see Table 1.
If you installed the optional TIVsm-BAcit package, uninstall it before you
uninstall the client:
rpm -e TIVsm-BAcit
Uninstall the backup-archive client.
rpm -e TIVsm-BA
rpm -e TIVsm-msg.xx_xx

- If you installed the optional TIVsm-BAcit package, uninstall it before you uninstall the client:
Uninstall any products that depend on the API, such as IBM Spectrum Protect for Databases and IBM Spectrum Protect for Mail. Any API-dependent products must be
uninstalled before you uninstall the API package. If you uninstall an API-dependent product, you
must reinstall it after you install a newer version of the backup-archive client and API packages.
Consult the documentation of the dependent product to determine what you need to do to prevent data
loss when you uninstall and reinstall the products.
If you installed the optional API common inventory package (TIVsm-APIcit),
uninstall it before you uninstall the API package. Use the following command to uninstall the
rpm -e TIVsm-APIcit
Uninstall the API package by using the following command:
rpm -e TIVsm-API64
