In Client Automation one may stage a software package from an Enterprise Server to a Domain Server and Scalability Servers. If one wish to remove the package, here are the steps to accomplish this.


CA Client Automation - All supported versions.


1. To remove a package, please log into the Domain Manager, select and right click on the package name and then select "Delete" 
2. You will receive a message stating "Removing software from the Software Package Library will erase all associated installation and distribution records from the database..." 
please press "Yes" 
3. The package will be deleted, then please go to the Enterprise Manager and delete the package from there as well. 

NOTE: As clearly stated deleting the package will also remove the distribution history. If you wish to retain the history the application can be Archived instead.
