To undeploy .sca

Hi All,

Is there any other way to undeploy .sca file apart from JSPM and SDM? If it is possible through telnet pl give the syntax.




Hello Ramesh,

It is not possible to undeploy SCA file as a whole.

The SDM and JSPM do not offer such option.

Instead you have two options:

1. If your goal is to revert to previous version of the SCA you could deploy the older version and select the option update any version.

2. If your goal is to remove application, then you could select all SDA files that are part of the SCA and undeploy them.

You should never try to undeploy the core SCA files because that will break the Java server.

You could use the SDM command line to execute the undeployment.

Please refer to the SDM command line guide at SDM/program/doc/SDMCommandLineDoc.pdf for through description of all SDM command line options.

In short first you have to stop the SDM server and set it to stand alone mode.

Then you could run:

sdm undeploy list=<...> | { compname=<...> compvendor=<...> } [undeploydb=yes|no]

The above mentioned document provides detailed instructions.

You could also undeploy from the Telnet Administrator, but that is not recommended because that way the SDM server is bypassed and the SDM repository is not updated and it will became inconsistent. As result youu2019ll have troubles deploying the same SCA with the SDM/JSPM later.
