When you remove the Tivoli Data Protection for Oracle using pkgrm and you try to reinstall, you’ll notice that it will say that the install size will be 11 MBs but in reality it installs only 6 MBs. You need to uninstall it using a uninstaller script that comes with the package. After you run the uninstall script, you can run the installer script and it will install the 11 MBs.
