How do I uninstall the Agent Manager?

This section topic describes how to completely uninstall the Agent Manager and remove the init.d script used to run the Agent Manager as a daemon or the Foglight® Agent Manager Windows® service.

To remove the init.d script used to run the Agent Manager as a daemon on UNIX®:
IMPORTANT: Stop the Agent Manager using the init.d script, then remove the init.d script before uninstalling the Agent Manager.
Switch to the root user and run the script with the remove option:
The setup script removes the init.d script quest-fglam and all known symlinks to the quest-fglam script. See Installing the Agent Manager using the installer interface for the location from which it is removed.
Delete the installation directory (referred to as <fglam_home> in this chapter section) and any state directories related to this installation.

The workaround is to move or rename the file before you delete it. For example:

$ $FGLAM_HOME/bin/fglam -q

$ cd $FGLAM_HOME/..

$ mv $FGLAM_HOME x

# rm -rf x

Where can I find the Agent Manager installation log files?

The Agent Manager saves its log files in the <fglam_home>/state/<state_name>/logs directory.

In addition to the installation log file, Install*.log, that contains messages logged during the installation, the Agent Manager also provides the following log files:

FglAM*.log contains messages logged during run-time.
quest-runner*.log contains messages logged by the external process runner.
quest-watchdog*.log contains information from the Agent Manager self-monitoring watchdog process.
auditor/SecurityAudit*.log contains information about agent activities needed for agent developers and Quest Support.

Why does the message "Created system preferences directory in java.home" appear after I finish installing the Agent Manager on AIX?

This is a benign log message from JavaTM that appears when you finish installing the Agent Manager on AIX®. Java performs the action described the first time a specific user runs Java on a machine.
