This page describes how to remove the Enterprise Console software and associated files using the uninstaller utility located in the Enterprise Console directory.

Before Starting

Uninstalling the Enterprise Console will not uninstall any of the components it has deployed or managed since the Enterprise Console installer is agnostic of the Controller and other services. Therefore, you do not need to first uninstall any components before uninstalling the Enterprise Console. However, if you accidentally uninstall the Enterprise Console without first uninstalling any components, then you will have to manually manage the remaining platforms and components. Leftover environments can be also be rediscovered using another Enterprise Console application.

Uninstall the Enterprise Console Manually

  1. Open a console on the machine where the Enterprise Console is installed: 

    • On Linux, open a terminal window and switch to the user who installed the Enterprise Console or to a user with equivalent directory permissions. 

    • On Windows, open an elevated command prompt by right-clicking on the Command Prompt icon in the Windows Start Menu and choosing Run as Administrator

  2. From the command line, navigate to the Enterprise Console home directory. 

  3. Execute the uninstaller script to uninstall the Enterprise Console, as follows: 
    • On Linux:

    • On Windows:

      run installer/uninstallPlatfom.exe
    • To uninstall in quiet mode, add the -q option. For example:

      ./installer/uninstallPlatform -q 

      With this option, you do not need to interact with the installer to complete the removal.

      On the Enterprise console host and any of the hosts that the Enterprise Console manages, <platform home dir>/jre and <platform home dir>/orcha are not removed.
