In GoldenGate 12c, the installation and the de-installation process has been standardized to use the Oracle Universal Installer (OUI) interface. In this article we will look at how can we deinstall Oracle GoldenGate.
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
Oracle GoldenGate Command Interpreter for Oracle
Version 126.96.36.199.0 17185003 OGGCORE_188.8.131.52.0_PLATFORMS_130924.1316_FBO

GGSCI (localhost.localdomain) 1> stop er *
No ER groups found, but some coordinated threads may have been excluded.
GGSCI (localhost.localdomain) 2> stop manager
Manager is already stopped.
GGSCI (localhost.localdomain) 3> exit
Once everything has been stopped you can now use the deinstall utility to remove the GoldenGate binaries. Execute the following command.
ALERT: Ensure all the processes running from the current Oracle Home are shutdown prior to running this software deinstallation script.
