The Unattended mode enables you to automate the removal of the VMware Smart Assurance products.

  1. Invoke the uninstallation program with appropriate options for the operating system:

  2. On RHEL/CentOS systems, go to the BASEDIR/_uninst directory and enter the following command:

                         uninstaller -i silent 
  3. Upon completion, the uninstallation program will remove all of the files and directories in the BASEDIR/smarts directory, and then remove the smarts directory.

    The uninstallation program will also write an uninstall log file to the BASEDIR directory, unless the uninstallation fails at the very start, in which case the installation program will write the log file to the /tmp directory. A non-zero status indicates a failure. The log file is a text file with the naming convention Uninstall.<product>.<productversionNumber>.log.
