The Siteminder r12.8.x AdminUI installer failed, indicating it could not upgrade the existing version of the AdminUI, even though there was no AdminUI installed on the machine.
Release : 12.8.x
Component : Siteminder AdminUI
Operating System: Linux
The uninstallation of the AdminUI was not clean. The uninstaller had failed to uninstall the AdminUI, so it was manually deleted at the file system level. This did not clear out all of the remnants of the previous installation. The installation was being performed by 'smuser'. This was the same user that installed the previous instance of the AdminUI.
There is a ".com.zerog.registry.xml" still present as a hidden file on the system.
1) Browse to the users home directory
2) List all the files, including hidden files in the /smuser directory
3) Delete the .com.zerog.registry.xml file found
rm -R .com.zerog.registry.xml
