UninstallSpectrum won't start

    Hey Community,


    I try to uninstall (as root) a Spectrum 9.3H03 by executing "./UninstallSpectrum" within the "/usr/SPECTRUM/Install-Tools/Uninstaller/" directory but the only thing that happens is that I get an "Invocation Error" (see screenshot).

    Tried the process also with the mentioned arguments but no success. Anyone ever had this issue and knows a solution?


    The machine is a CentOS 6.7 64bit. I know I could simply remove all Spectrum related files but I rather would like to use the official Uninstaller.


    Thanks for any hints,

    Hi Jan,


    I have seen a similiar message once, but for an older version of Spectrum (9.2 I believe it was). Haven't seen it happening for a while though.


    Since removing files and cleaning up manually also works, we didn't really bother looking into it.


    But maybe it is something related to the temp directory permissions, sticky bit, something like that.

    Hm so one of those things... you don't bother CA support again for ;-)


    I removed the s-bit from /tmp but still the Uninstaller won't start. I see that files get created and access should be no problem (regardless of the sticky bit).

    So I came back to the original fallback idea... removing the files manually. Here is a list what should be removed. Any other suggestions so we could complete the list if somebody else stumbles upon this post?


    rm -rf /usr/SPECTRUM

    rm -rf /opt/SRAdmin

    rm -rf /opt/SPECTRUM

    rm -rf /opt/CA

    rm -rf /etc/init.d/sradmin

    rm -rf /etc/init.d/processd

    rm -rf /etc/rc*.d/*processd

    rm -rf /etc/rc*.d/*sradmin
