Removing Blueworx

Note: All commands must be run as root, or as a user with root privileges using the sudo command.

Remove the CPD database

The CPD database created on the postgresql96-server can be removed using the bdb remove script.

Note: If CPD removal is required it should be done before removing any Blueworx packages.

Group package remove

To remove the Blueworx package group, use the yum remove command specifying the Blueworx group:

yum remove @blueworx
Note: Removing the Blueworx group will only remove the packages installed as part of the Blueworx group installation. If you installed a Blueworx package prior to installing the Blueworx group, only the items installed as part of the group installation will be removed.

For example:

  1. Install blueworx-vr
  2. Install Blueworx group - this results in the blueworx-rm, blueworx-am, and blueworx-db packages being installed
  3. Remove Blueworx group - this results in the blueworx-rm, blueworx-am, and blueworx-db packages being removed, blueworx-vr would remain installed
  4. To remove blueworx-vr, remove the package as explained below.

If you wish to remove the whole or part of blueworx then see Files and Folders created during Installation for details of folders that can be removed once a package has been removed.
