fnsw FN.4.1.1.126 FileNET IS Software
fnsw FN.4.0.40.129 FileNET IS Software

(root)/> swremove fnsw,r=FN.4.1.1.126

It seems the contents of /var/adm/sw/products/fnsw.2 have been deleted, and unfortunately restoring these files isn't an option.

How can I remove this software? Can I manually remove the config from swinstall?

Thanks

Do you know why that file isn't there? Did you fiddle with the IPD? Are there other directories/files missing under fnsw.2 and fnsw?

You can use "swmodify -u" to remove entries but that won't clean things up.
You should take an ignite backup before more fiddling.
