15.4 Uninstalling PlateSpin Migrate Connector

You might need to uninstall the PlateSpin Migrate Connector after a transformation project is complete and you no longer need the Migrate Connector instance to run on its host server in the source network.

  1. Log in to the Connector host server as the root user.

  2. Open a terminal console, then combine the rpm -qa and grep commands to find the exact name of the installed PlateSpin Migrate Connector package:

    rpm -qa | grep -i platespin-migrate-connector

    The query reports the exact name of the package, such as


    where xxx represents the build number.

  3. Uninstall the package:

    rpm -ev <exact-package-name>
  4. Repeat the query to verify that the package is no longer installed:

    rpm -qa | grep -i platespin-migrate-connector

    The command should return the following message:

    package platespin-migrate-connector is not installed
  5. (Optional) Delete the matching Connector instance in the Transformation Manager Connectors list.

    See Section 17.7, Deleting a Connector Instance from PTM. It can take up to 10 minutes for a deleted Connector to be dropped from the list.
