Issue/Introduction

While trying to uninstall 12.8 Policy Server on linux, instead of clean uninstallation the CA folder was deleted by mistakenly.

Now while trying to re-install the server on the same box, it is giving errors and it is not getting installed properly.

Environment

Release : 12.8

Component : SITEMINDER -WEB AGENT FOR APACHE

Resolution

On linux, the installation creates several files which can be in a global location - usually under /var and or the directory where siteminder is installed - and/or the home directory of the user who installed siteminder.

These files are:

.com.zerog.registry.xml
.Admin_UI_Prerequisite_Registry.registry
.CA_IAM_FW.registry

Please do a system wide file search for these files. The following commands should do this:

find / -name ".com.zerog.registry.xml"
find / -name ".Admin_UI_Prerequisite_Registry.registry"
find / -name ".CA_IAM_FW.registry"

These files should be deleted, or renamed, so siteminder can then be installed again.
