Errors occur when uninstalling multiple server and tooling products



Uninstalling multiple products (for example, IBM Business Process Manager and IBM Integration Designer) at the same time might cause Installation Manager errors or warnings. The types of errors or warnings you receive vary, depending on the combination of products that you attempt to uninstall.


If you uninstall server and tooling products (for example, IBM Integration Designer, IBM Business Process Manager Advanced, IBM Process Server Test environment, and IBM Process Designer) at the same time, you might see the following errors:

If you uninstall tooling products (for example, IBM Integration Designer and Forms Designer 4.0) and the IBM Process Server Test Environment at the same time, you might see the following warnings:

If you uninstall tooling products and server product packages (for example, IBM Integration Designer, the IBM Process Server Test Environment, and IBM Process Designer) at the same time, you might see the following errors:

java.lang.IllegalStateException: No metadata found for installed IU 6.1.0.v20071130_1200.$ProfileInstallRegistry.getInstalledIU($ContextInstallRegistry.getInstalledIU($ContextInstallRegistry.getInstalledIU($ContextInstallRegistry.addInstalledIUs($ContextInstallRegistry.getInstalledIUs($$

Resolving The Problem

Uninstall each server product individually. You can also manually delete the remaining installation folders after the installation failure occurs.
