CA Spectrum


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.


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


Spectrum install on Linux (any version) or Solaris (10.2.x and below)


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 >
