Hello, 

Could you provide the steps to completely uninstall NetBackup 8.2 from a Redhat Linux Master then the RedHat Linux media servers ?

This is a test system so no catalog recovery is required, just want to do a complete wipe.  But includnig the catalog steps is fine too !

Thanks !

rpm -qa | grep VRTS
Assuming you don't have storage Foundation or such installed you should be good to uninstall all of those.
Then " rm -rf /usr/openv/ " to finish off.

Thanks, how about any rc scripts or other installed files/settings ?

Hi @Thomas_Anthony 

If you reread the reply, he indicated to remove the packages identified by the first rpm command. If you want a one liner that will do it all you could try this (BUT first make sure it's not going to include anything you want to keep!):
rpm -qa | grep VRTS | xargs rpm -ev

The package "rpm -ev" should also remove the various rc scripts etc. (and the final suggestion of "rm -rf /usr/openv " will get rid of everything else.

Thank you kindly for both responses !  I didn't know how thorough removing the RPMs were
