Uninstalling the Steel-Belted Radius Carrier Server Software

 

The software uninstall procedure is essentially the same for a standalone server or cluster node, the only difference being how the processes are stopped.

To uninstall the Steel-Belted Radius Carrier server software from its default location (/opt/JNPRsbr) on Solaris server:

  1. Log in to the server or node as root.

  2. Stop the RADIUS process. The exact syntax for this step depends on the server type:

    For a standalone server, execute:

    cd /opt/JNPRsbr/radius

    ./sbrd stop

    In a cluster environment, stopping the SSR and RADIUS processes on the various node types, must be done in a specific order. Follow the procedures described in When and How to Restart Session State Register Nodes, Hosts, and Clusters, and then proceed to the next step.

  3. (Optional) Back up your Steel-Belted Radius Carrier server directory.

    Create a new archive directory to ensure that you do not overwrite an existing backup.

    cd /opt/JNPRsbr

    mkdir /opt/backups

    tar cf - radius | ( cd /opt/backups; tar xfBp - )

  4. Navigate to the directory where you unpacked the Steel-Belted Radius Carrier package, usually /opt/JNPRsbr/radius/install.

    Execute:

    cd /opt/JNPRsbr/radius/install/

  5. Execute the unconfigure script:

    Execute:

    ./unconfigure

  6. A warning message is displayed. Enter y to proceed.

  7. Clean up the user accounts.

    A prompt is displayed to delete or preserve and clean up the hadm user account and associated directories.

    • If you are going to reconfigure this server to serve as a standalone SBR Carrier server or become a node host in a cluster, enter n.

    • If the server will be used for other purposes, enter y.

  8. The script removes the software from various directories in /opt:

  9. Remove the software:

    1. Log in as root.

    2. Execute:

      cd/opt

      pkgrm JNPRsbr

    Example:

  2. Stop the RADIUS process. The exact syntax for this step depends on the server type:

    For a standalone server, execute:

    cd /opt/JNPRsbr/radius

    ./sbrd stop

  8. Clean up the user accounts.

    A prompt is displayed to delete or preserve and clean up the hadm user account and associated directories.

    • If you are going to reconfigure this server so that it serves as a standalone SBR Carrier server or becomes a node host in a cluster, enter n.

    • If the server will be used for other purposes, enter y.

  9. To remove the SBR software, execute:

    • yum remove sbr-cl for the cluster configuration.

    • yum remove sbr-sa for the standalone configuration.

  10. The script removes the SBR software from the server.
