Uninstalling v7

Uninstalling the Replication Server results in the removal of the following:

  • Publication server
  • Subscription server
  • EPRS console
  • Replication Server command line interface
  • EPRS replication configuration file
  • Replication Server startup configuration file
  • Publication server configuration file
  • Subscription server configuration file

Uninstalling Replication Server doesn't remove any databases used as primary nodes, publication databases, or subscription databases.

Use the Replication Server console or the Replication Server command line interface to delete any existing single-master or multi-master replication systems before you uninstall Replication Server. Otherwise the control-schema objects created in the publication databases or primary nodes remain in those databases. You must then delete these control-schema objects manually, such as by using a SQL command line utility.

If you installed Replication Server using the Replication Server installer program invoked from Stack Builder or StackBuilder Plus, uninstall Replication Server by invoking the uninstall-xdbreplicationserver script.

Uninstalling an RPM package installation

If you installed Replication Server from the RPM package, uninstall it using the yum package manager.

If you installed Replication Server from the RPM package, you can uninstall a Replication Server component by using the following command:

yum remove package_name 

Where package_name is edb-xdb-console, edb-xdb-publisher, or edb-xdb-subscriber.

You can remove all Replication Server components using the following command:

yum remove edb-xdb*`

For example:

[root@localhost yum.repos.d]# yum remove edb-xdb*
