Introduction:

I need to uninstall the current Spectrum software using a SILENT method.  The only documentation that exists for the Uninstallation process is using the GUI... but we are unable to run the GUI on Linux RHEL in our environment.

 

Question:

How can I uninstall Spectrum via a silent command line method? 

Environment:
LINUX RHEL 5.x, 6.x, 7.x
Answer:

You can uninstall Spectrum via command line by following these steps: 

1.Stop CA Spectrum. 

2.Log in as root and navigate to the <$SPECROOT>/Install-Tools/Uninstaller directory. 

3. Enter ./UninstallSpectrum <specroot> <tmp dir> < -silent >
