After uninstalling XFlow it would not reinstall. XFlow and Search Server were uninstalled according to instructions here:, then the installation wizard was executed again to reinstall them.

Installation ends in the "Installing xflow Interface" step with this popup message:
   Install/Upgrade failed
   Please refer to log file at /tmp/casm/install.log and retry.

The installation log file shows:

On the Linux server, searched for a file named ".com.zerog.registry.xml"

2 copies of this file were found in folders "/var" and "/opt/CA/ServiceDeskManager/SDUninstall"

The copy of this file found in folder "/var" was moved to the "/tmp" folder.

After this the installation wizard was started again. This time it succeeded.
