    Default How to uninstall software

    I would like to re-install the software. What are the steps to completely de-install the product.

    Thanks.

    Default partial uninstall

    I have done full uninstall a couple of times with the -u switch as listed in the docs. Seems to remove all user info is there a way to reinstall zimbra without destroy all the user info?

    Do you not want to remove the zimbra user from /etc/passwd, or the users created in the zimbra system?

    If the latter, you can't really de-install the software completely without removing the ldap db, and the message store.

    It is, however, possible to re-run the installer, which will allow you to reconfigure the system (and will remove and re-install the rpms).
