Reinstaling Tivoli Data Protection for Oracle on Solaris SPARC

root@sol10sparc:~ # pkginfo -l TDPOrc64
PKGINST:  TDPOrc64
NAME:  IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Databases – Oracle 64-bit Solaris 8/9/10
CATEGORY:  application
ARCH:  sparc
VERSION:  Version 5 Release 3 Level 3
BASEDIR:  /opt/tivoli/tsm/client
VENDOR:  IBM Tivoli
PSTAMP:  2006.167.17:10:16
INSTDATE:  Oct 09 2008 22:09
STATUS:  completely installed
FILES:        8 installed pathnames
2 shared pathnames
3 directories
4 executables
4420 blocks used (approx)

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.

root@sol10sparc:~ # /opt/tivoli/tsm/client/oracle/_uninst/uninstaller.bin
