Removing endpoints

Endpoints

Recommended Links Gateway Troubleshooting TEC Documentation Using Log Files to Troubleshoot Tivoli Environment Etc

At some point during the life cycle of a Tivoli environment, there will be a need for you to remove an endpoint  For example, you might install endpoints on machines in a prototype environment before you roll out Tivoli Management Framework to the enterprise.

See the section about deleting and uninstalling endpoints in Tivoli Enterprise Installation Guide

Removing endpoint consists of two separate operations:

Deleting endpoints from the Tivoli object database

Deleting endpoints from the Tivoli object database

The wdelep command removes the specified endpoints from the Tivoli object database. The wdelep command with the -d option stops the endpoint service and removes the specified endpoints from the Tivoli object database.

The endpoints that the wdelep command is run against no longer appear on the desktop and no longer appear in reports. However, the endpoint software remains on these machines for future use.

To delete the endpoint software from the machine, you must uninstall it. Procedures for uninstalling endpoints are provided in the following section.

For additional information about the wdelep command, refer to the Tivoli Management Framework Reference Manual.

Uninstalling an endpoint

Note: this section was modified from Uninstalling endpoints

Uninstalling an endpoint erases the endpoint software on the machine where it was installed. However, uninstalling the software from the machine does not delete its associated information from the Tivoli object database. To delete the endpoint from the object database, refer to Deleting endpoints from the Tivoli object database.

The general procedure for uninstalling any endpoint involves the following (step for RHEL 4):

  1. Stopping the endpoint service, for example:
    . /etc/Tivoli/lcf/1/lcf_env.sh
    /opt/tivoli/lcf/dat/1/lcfd.sh stop
  2. Erasing the endpoint directories and files on the client computer, for example: 
    rm -R /etc/Tivoli
    rm -R /opt/tivoli/lcf    
  3. Removing startup statements from system configuration files on the client computer, for example:
    rm /etc/init.d/Tivoli_lcfd1
    find /etc -name "S*Tivoli_lcf*" -exec rm {} \;
    find /etc -name "K*Tivoli_lcf*" -exec rm {} \;
    

Different platform types require different specific steps for uninstalling endpoints. The next sections describe how to uninstall UNIX and PC endpoints.

Uninstalling endpoints from UNIX platforms

The general procedure for removing endpoints is the same on all UNIX platforms, but the specific configuration files and directories vary. The next sections provide removal steps specific to different UNIX platforms.

Note: The directories specified in the following procedures assume the default locations.
Uninstalling endpoints from AIX systems

To uninstall an endpoint on an AIX machine, perform the following steps:

  1. Stop the endpoint daemon using one of the following methods:
  2. Remove the endpoint installation directory and subdirectories. The default location is /opt/Tivoli/lcf.
  3. Remove the endpoint environment directory, subdirectory, and files. The directory is /etc/Tivoli/lcf. The environment files are lcf_env.sh and lcf_env.csh.
  4. Remove the endpoint startup entry in /etc/inittab using the following command:
    /etc/rmitab rctma1
  5. Remove the /etc/rc.tma1 and /etc/inittab.before.tma1 files.
  6. Remove the /etc/Tivoli/*/userlink.htm file.
Uninstalling endpoints from HP-UX systems

To uninstall an endpoint on an HP-UX machine, perform the following steps:

  1. Stop the endpoint daemon using one of the following methods:
  2. Remove the endpoint installation directory and subdirectories. The default location is /opt/Tivoli/lcf.
  3. Remove the endpoint environment directory, subdirectory, and files. The directory is /etc/Tivoli/lcf. The environment files are lcf_env.sh and lcf_env.csh.
  4. Remove the /sbin/init.d/lcfd1.sh file, which is the endpoint startup script.
  5. Remove the following symbolic links:
    /sbin/rc0.d/K100Tivoli_lcf1
    /sbin/rc1.d/K100Tivoli_lcf1
    /sbin/rc2.d/K100Tivoli_lcf1
    /sbin/rc3.d/S500Tivoli_lcf1
     
  6. Remove the /etc/Tivoli/*/userlink.htm file.
Uninstalling Endpoints on Solaris systems

To uninstall an endpoint on a Solaris machine, perform the following steps:

  1. Stop the endpoint daemon using one of the following methods:
  2. Remove the endpoint installation directory and subdirectories. The default location is /opt/Tivoli/lcf.
  3. Remove the endpoint environment directory, subdirectory, and files. The directory is /etc/Tivoli/lcf. The environment files are lcf_env.sh and lcf_env.csh.
  4. Remove the /etc/init.d/lcfd1.rc file, which is the endpoint startup script.
  5. Remove the following symbolic links:
    /etc/rc0.d/K50Tivoli_lcf1
    /etc/rc1.d/K50Tivoli_lcf1
    /etc/rc2.d/K50Tivoli_lcf1
    /etc/rc3.d/S99Tivoli_lcf1
     
  6. Remove the /etc/Tivoli/*/userlink.htm file.
Uninstalling endpoints from Linux platforms

To uninstall an endpoint from a Linux for Intel system, perform the following steps:

  1. Stop the endpoint service using the lcfd.sh stop command.
     
  2. Remove the installation directory:
    rm -r /opt/Tivoli/lcf/1
  3. Remove the endpoint environment directory:
    rm -r /etc/Tivoli/lcf/1
  4. Remove the /etc/Tivoli/*/userlink.htm file.
     
  5. Remove the following autostart files and symbolic links from the system, if they exist:
    /etc/rc.d/init.d/lcfd1.rc
    /etc/rc.d/init.d/lcfd1.sh
    /etc/rc.d/init.d/Tivoli_lcfd1
    /etc/rc.d/rc0.d/K10Tivoli_lcf1

Re Orphan endpoint deletion msg#00027 sysutils.tivoli.general

An orphaned endpoint has been deleted.

That is why it is orphaned, because it has been deleted, but the endpoint
has an lcf.dat file that tells it that it is part of the TMR, so it will
keep trying to login to the environment.

To stop it from trying to login as an orphan you would delete the lcf.dat file on the endpoint.

To avoid future orphans from being created, you should use the "wdelep -d" command
option. This will delete the lcf.dat file when the endpoint is deleted from the TMR.

The terminology you are using seems to be incorrect. If I haven't addressed the issue you are having, I'd suggest that you explain your problem then maybe someone can explain how you can resolve it.
