Deinstalling GoldenGate 12c

Deinstalling Oracle GoldenGate is a simple task and requires a few simple steps. First you need to make sure that no GoldenGate process is running. To stop all the processes you need to access GGSCI tool and stop everything including Manager.

$ cd /u01/app/oracle/product/12.1.0/oggcore_1
$ ./ggsci

Once everything has been stopped you can now use the deinstall utility to remove the GoldenGate binaries. Execute the following command.

$ $ORACLE_GG_HOME/deinstall/deinstall.sh
