    Uninstallation of Hotfix 9.5.1 HF1

    Guru

      Hello Admins,

       

      I have installed Hot fix 1 for Informatica powercenter 9.5.1 in my project. Now when I go to Developer client it's giving me compatibility error. SO I tried to download the Informatica powercenter 9.5.1 HF1 client installables I think the zip file is correpted and not getting installed properly.

      Now I want to revert back to my original version that is on Informatica 9.5.1 .

       

       

      Please let me know the process for this. Is there any documentation avalable for this.

       

       

       

      Regards,

      Pritish Umathe

          For both Server and Client, you can run the Installer again and select the rollback option.

              Dear Both,

               

               

              Thanks for quick reply. I have installed HF1 for  Informatica 9.5.1 on my server. now my client tool is at privious version that is 9.5.1 so I am getting error that Client 9.5.1 is not compatable with server version 9.5.1 HF1.

               

              As we are working on remote desktop machines nad it will take near about a month to install upgraded client on all Vertual machines . We are trying to revert back as it is Dev environment and affecting our work.

               

               

              Can you please provide detail guidelines or step  for Rollback option. As I have not done it before need to confirm is there any risk in  Roll back option.

               

              Kindly shre your views.

                Pritish,

                 

                Nothing to worry. Hot Fix uninstallation is a pretty straight forward approach and it will not impact the existing installation by any mean. All it does is rollback to the previously backed up INFA_HOME directory during the uninstallation process. Please ensure that the Domain is shutdown before performing the uninstallation.

                 

                Thanks,

                Srikanth

                  Hello All,

                   

                  I am trying to unistall the hot fix by running command  ./uninstaller.

                   

                  my current Dir is $INFA_HOME/Uninstaller_Server

                   

                  Its not showing anything running or any error. Screen remains blank. I am using Linux 2.6 OS

                  Please let me know what should be the cause of this.

                   

                  Regards,

                    Hi

                    Please run the HF installer and choose the rollback option. Do not use the Uninstaller.

                      Hold on... Don't use the uninstaller. It will uninstall the entire installation. Go to the location where the Hot fix installer files are located and follow as per below example.

                       

                      $ ./install.sh

                      --------------------------

                       

                      Verify the prerequisites before you apply or roll back the hotfix.

                       

                      Installation Prerequisites

                      --------------------

                      PowerCenter Services version 8.6.1 must be installed on this machine.

                       

                      Informatica Services must not be running.

                       

                      You must use the same user account used to install the previous version of

                      PowerCenter Services.

                       

                      Stop all processes that access the PowerCenter directory and subdirectories,

                              Hi Srikanth,

                               

                              I am undergoing a similar activity where I am now requiring a rollback.

                              I have made changes in the existing domain/repository and added few components post Hotfix Upgrade.

                               

                              If I rollback to previous hotfix, will all those changes be wiped out ?

                               

                              Please help.

                               

                              Thanks
