To remove a cluster of Sametime servers running on WebSphere Application Server on AIX, Linux, Solaris, or Windows, remove the nodes and the cluster first, then uninstall the individual servers.
Follow these steps to remove all servers in a cluster and to remove the cluster itself.
1. Removing a node from a Deployment Manager before removing it from a cluster
Before uninstalling an IBM
Sametime server that was federated at install time or during registration, remove the node from the Deployment Manager.
2. Removing a WebSphere Application Server node from a cluster
Before uninstalling an IBM Sametime
® server that was clustered with an IBM WebSphere
® Application Server network deployment, use the updateWASCluster -remove
command to remove the node from the cluster.
3. Unregistering a cluster of WebSphere-based servers on AIX, Linux, Solaris, or Windows
With the node removed from the IBM Sametime
server cluster, you can now unregister the cluster from the Sametime
System Console. After you unregister the cluster, it can no longer be administered from the Sametime
System Console, which also serves as the Deployment Manager.
4. Unregistering Sametime Gateway
Before you uninstall an IBM
Sametime Gateway server on IBM AIX, Linux, Solaris, or Microsoft Windows, remove it from the list of the Sametime System Console's managed servers by running the unregister utility. You should only unregister Sametime Gateway when you will uninstall the server or perform some other activity that requires removal of the product from the console.
5. Editing the multibroker.xml file before removing a cluster
Edit the multibroker.xml file to remove a specific line before removing the cluster.
6. Removing a cluster from WebSphere Application Server on AIX, Linux, Solaris, or Windows
Remove the Sametime cluster from WebSphere
Application Server network deployment.
7. Uninstalling a WebSphere-based Sametime server from a cluster
Uninstall IBM Sametime
System Console, Sametime
Proxy Server, Sametime
Media Manager, Sametime
Meeting Server, or Sametime
Advanced on a server running IBM AIX
, Oracle Solaris, or Microsoft Windows
. These servers all run on IBM WebSphere
Application Server, similar to Sametime
Gateway, but require a different process for uninstallation.
8. Uninstalling a Sametime Bandwidth Manager server node in a cluster on Linux or Windows
Uninstall IBM Sametime
Bandwidth Manager on a server running Linux
. This server runs on IBM WebSphere
Application Server, similar to other Sametime
servers, but requires a different process for uninstallation.
9. Uninstalling WebSphere and Sametime Gateway
Uninstall the IBM WebSphere Application Server and IBM Sametime Gateway server applications on a computer running IBM AIX, Linux, Oracle Solaris, or Microsoft Windows.
10. Uninstalling the Sametime application from the Deployment Manager
After you uninstall the last node in a cluster and remove the cluster, clear the IBM Sametime
application from the Deployment Manager so it no longer appears in the WebSphere
Enterprise Applications list.
