10g RAC: How to Clean Up After a Failed CRS Install
-----------------------------------------------------
Not cleaning up a failed CRS install can cause problems like node reboots.Follow these steps to clean up a failed CRS install:

1. Run the rootdelete.sh script then the rootdeinstall.sh script from the $ORA_CRS_HOME/install directory on any nodes you are removing CRS from. Running these scripts should be sufficent to clean up your CRS install. If you have any problems with these scripts please open a service request.

If for some reason you have to manually remove the install due to problemswith the scripts, continue to step 2:

2. Stop the Nodeapps on all nodes:
srvctl stop nodeapps -n

3. Prevent CRS from starting when the node boots. To do this issue the followingas root:

Sun:

rm /etc/init.d/init.cssd
rm /etc/init.d/init.crs
rm /etc/init.d/init.crsd
rm /etc/init.d/init.evmd
rm /etc/rc3.d/K96init.crs
rm /etc/rc3.d/S96init.crs
rm -Rf /var/opt/oracle/scls_scr
rm -Rf /var/opt/oracle/oprocd rm /etc/inittab.crs
cp /etc/inittab.orig /etc/inittab

Linux:
rm /etc/oracle/*
rm -f /etc/init.d/init.cssd
rm -f /etc/init.d/init.crs
rm -f /etc/init.d/init.crsd
rm -f /etc/init.d/init.evmd
rm -f /etc/rc2.d/K96init.crs

rm -f /etc/rc5.d/S96init.crs
rm -Rf /etc/oracle/scls_scr
rm -f /etc/inittab.crs
cp /etc/inittab.orig /etc/inittab

rm /sbin/rc2.d/K960init.crs
rm /sbin/rc2.d/K001init.crs
rm /sbin/rc3.d/K960init.crs
rm /sbin/rc3.d/S960init.crs
rm -Rf /var/opt/oracle/scls_scr
rm -Rf /var/opt/oracle/oprocd
rm /etc/inittab.crs
cp /etc/inittab.orig /etc/inittab

HP Tru64:
rm /sbin/init.d/init.cssd
rm /sbin/init.d/init.crs
rm /sbin/init.d/init.crsd
rm /sbin/init.d/init.evmd
rm /sbin/rc3.d/K96init.crs
rm /sbin/rc3.d/S96init.crs
rm -Rf /var/opt/oracle/scls_scr
rm -Rf /var/opt/oracle/oprocd

IBM AIX:

rm /etc/init.crs
rm /etc/init.crsd
rm /etc/init.evmd
rm /etc/rc.d/rc2.d/K96init.crs
rm /etc/rc.d/rc2.d/S96init.crs
rm -Rf /etc/oracle/scls_scr
rm -Rf /etc/oracle/oprocd
rm /etc/inittab.crs
cp /etc/inittab.orig /etc/inittab

4. If they are not already down, kill off EVM, CRS, and CSS processes or reboot the node:

ps -ef grep crs
kill
ps -ef grep evm
kill
ps -ef grep css
kill

Do not kill any OS processes, for example icssvr_daemon process !

5. If there is no other Oracle software running (like listeners, DB's, etc...), you can remove the files in /var/tmp/.oracle or /tmp/.oracle. Example:

rm -f /var/tmp/.oracle
or
rm -f /tmp/.oracle

6. Remove the ocr.loc Usually the ocr.loc can be found at /etc/oracle

7. De-install the CRS home in the Oracle Universal Installer

8. Remove the CRS install location:

rm -Rf /*

9. Clean out the OCR and Voting Files with dd commands. Example:
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/rdsk/V1064_vote_01_20m.dbf bs=8192 count=2560
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/rdsk/ocrV1064_100m.ora bs=8192 count=12800

If you placed the OCR and voting disk on a shared filesystem, remove them.

If you are removing the RDBMS installation, also clean out any ASM disks if they have already been used.

10.If you would like to re-install CRS, follow the steps in the RAC Installation manual.
