The Informatica uninstallation process deletes all Informatica files and clears all Informatica configurations from a machine. The uninstallation process does not delete files that are not installed with Informatica. For example, the installation process creates temporary directories. The uninstaller does not keep a record of these directories and therefore cannot delete them. You must manually delete these directories for a clean uninstallation.
When you install the Informatica server or Informatica clients, the installer creates an uninstaller. The uninstaller is stored in the uninstallation directory.
The following table lists the uninstallation directory for each type of installation:
Uninstallation Directory Name
<Informatica installation directory>/Uninstaller_Server
<Informatica installation directory>/Uninstaller_Client
To uninstall Informatica, use the uninstaller created during the installation. On UNIX, uninstall Informatica from the command line. On Windows, uninstall Informatica from the Windows Start menu or Control Panel.
If you installed the PowerCenter Client and the Informatica services in the same install directory, the service binaries will be uninstalled when you uninstall the PowerCenter Client.
