Overview

The uninstall process removes GroundWork Monitor Enterprise and deletes the remaining artifacts of /usr/local/groundwork. Specifically, the /usr/local/groundwork/users directory and file tree, the PostgreSQL database, and all local plugins added to the system.

Steps
  1. Open a PuTTY session (or similar) to the GroundWork server.
  2. As user root, execute the following command to start the uninstall process:
    /usr/local/groundwork/uninstall
  3. On some systems users are left behind, these users can be removed with the following commands:
    userdel -f postgres
    userdel -f nagios
    userdel -f gdma
  4. Some user generated data is intentionally not removed with an uninstall. If you wish to purge this data as well you can remove it:
    rm -rf /usr/local/groundwork/*
  5. The /usr/local/groundwork/ directory can now be deleted unless it is a filesystem mount point:
    rm -rf /usr/local/groundwork
