Hi

Chk out for the dependencies that system fault management software has.

You need to remove those softwares also for a clean removal.

Note: The other softwares might be reqd. for some other application

Re: Unable to remove the installed software

Hello,

It means that there are other installed applications that require some files from the management software.

You must uninstall those also in order to completely remove this software. Swremove checks if it is safe or not to remove any files from some package. If this would break some dependencies, then swremove will leave alone the corresponding file.

Check swremove.log

Check
\/var/adm/sw/swagent.log

if you want to remove sw with dependencies

then use -x autoselect_dependents=true option

Re: Unable to remove the installed software

Careful might be challenging to remove .. but start by listing state of existing sw :
# swlist -l fileset -a state |grep -v \# | grep -v config
check swagent.log for details of what has been installed and what has been skipped .. remove those installed using swremove.
You might need to use swmodify command (man page)
# swmodify is used to modify some attributes in a depot ...
# swremove removes the entire depot or fileset u specify.

Hi,

Can you try to install the same again with reinstall=true (check the syntax) and find out the needed dependencies.
