Trying to uninstall a Oracle 11g RAC from a Windows Server 2008.
Following instructions on: http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11882_01/install.112/e25666/rem_orcl.htm
I was able to run batch: C:\app\oracle\product>11.2.0\dbhome_1\deinstall\deinstall.bat
Final messages was about succesfully uninstallation.
However, I had problems trying to delete folder c:\app. According to
Oracle forums, on Windows there are known problems that generic
process 'svchost.exe' locks some Oracle DLLs at boot time. To solve
the issue I followed instructions:
1) rename %ORACLE_HOME%\bin to something else 2) reboot the machine 3) now delete the complete folder
Then I went to Registry and deleted key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Oracle
Then reboot machine.
Problem is that Oracle Services still exists on Windows Services(services.msc). So I still see:
- Oracle Object Service
Those services point to erased executables like:
because C:\app folder was deleted.
What should I do to remove those services from Windows?
