Chapter 10. Removing Red Hat Gluster Storage Console

Warning

The rhsc-cleanup command removes all the existing Red Hat Gluster Storage Console data. This includes configuration settings, certificates, and database tables.

Procedure 10.1. Removing the Console

The Red Hat Gluster Storage Console provides the rhsc-cleanup utility to allow quick and easy removal of the data files associated with the installation. After rhsc-cleanup is run, you can remove the Red Hat Gluster Storage Console packages using yum.
  1. Execute rhsc-cleanup on the system that Red Hat Gluster Storage Console is installed on. You must be logged in as the root user to run rhsc-cleanup.
    # rhsc-cleanup
  2. Confirm that you want to remove all of the Red Hat Gluster Storage Console components. These include PKI Keys, the locally hosted ISO domain file system layout, PKI Configuration, the local NFS exports configuration, and the engine database content.
    Do you want to remove all components? (Yes, No) [Yes]: yes

    Note

    A backup of the Engine database and a compressed archive of the PKI keys and configuration are always automatically created. These are saved under /var/lib/ovirt-engine/backups/, and their filenames include the date and engine- and engine-pki-, respectively.
  3. You will be prompted to confirm the action to remove Red Hat Gluster Storage Console. If you choose to proceed, the ovirt-engine service is stopped, and the configuration is removed according to the options you select.
    During execution engine service will be stopped (OK, Cancel) [OK]: OK
    ovirt-engine is about to be removed, data will be lost (OK, Cancel) [Cancel]: OK
    
    The configuration files of the environment are removed.
  4. You can safely uninstall the Red Hat Gluster Storage Console packages using yum.
    # yum remove rhsc*

Note

A backup of the database is made available, the engine setup is cleaned-up, a backup of the PKI configuration and keys are made available, and the log file and answer files are generated.
