Uninstalling EditLive! for IBM Connections 1.0

Versions of the integration after 1.0 cannot uninstall the 1.0 integration due to changes in the underlying integration method.

This document is a copy of the uninstall guide from the 1.0 release for use before installing any later version.

The EditLive! for IBM Connections uninstaller needs to be provided with the location of your IBM Connections Customization path.  The value for this is provided by the CONNECTIONS_CUSTOMIZATION_PATH variable within with WebSphere Application server.  
 
For more information on IBM Connections customizations and the CONNECTIONS_CUSTOMIZATION_PATH see the IBM Connections documentation on customizations.

Note

 The EditLive! for IBM Connections uninstaller only requires the root cutomizations directory as provided by this variable.

Step Two - Run the Install Script

The uninstallation script - uninstall.sh - is located in the root directory of the EditLive! for IBM Connections package.
 
This script can be executed from any AIX, UNIX, OS X or LINUX environment that has SSH access to the IBM Connections server.

To uninstall EditLive! for IBM Connections execute the run the uninstall.sh script as follows
 

uninstall.sh USER@HOSTNAME DIR

 
This script requires the following parameters:

  • USER - The username to use for SSH access to the IBM Connections server.  This user must have write access to the CONNECTIONS_CUSTOMIZATION_PATH directory.

If you do not wish for a backup to be created run the uninstall script with the optional --no-backup parameter.  e.g.:

uninstall.sh --no-backup USER@HOSTNAME DIR
