To completely uninstall the IBM Spectrum Protect client software on Linux, follow these steps.
If you still need the configuration files, we recommend that you back them up beforehand.
Completely uninstall the client software
First remove the symlink of the service.
systemctl disable dsmcad
Then stop the corresponding service.
systemctl stop dsmcad
Use the following command to completely uninstall the IBM Spectrum Protect client software.
rpm -e `rpm -qa | grep TIVsm`
rpm -e gskcrypt64 gskssl64
If the following command does not return any output, the packages have been successfully uninstalled.
yum list installed | grep -e TIV -e gsk
Delete the dsmcad.service from systemd and the drop-in that was created for the input language during installation.
rm -f /usr/lib/systemd/system/dsmcad.service
rm -rf /etc/systemd/system/dsmcad.service.d/
Finally, remove the remaining directories of the client software.
Change /USER/ to the name of the user account from which you installed the client software.
rm -rf /opt/tivoli/
rm -rf /USER/IBM/
