Uninstalling ArcGIS Web Adaptor

To uninstall ArcGIS Web Adaptor, follow the steps in the sections below.

Once you uninstall the Web Adaptor, client applications will not be able to communicate with ArcGIS Server. To reestablish this communication in the future, use the Web Adaptor configuration page to register the Web Adaptor with ArcGIS Server. For full instructions, see Configuring ArcGIS Web Adaptor.

Unregistering the Web Adaptor

First you'll need to unregister the Web Adaptor with your site using ArcGIS Server Manager.


The unregistering functionality is only available starting at ArcGIS 10.1 SP1 for Server and is required beginning at 10.1 SP1. If your ArcGIS Server and Web Adaptor product versions are out of sync, you'll need to make sure both components are upgraded to same product version before proceeding.

  1. Open Manager and log in with a user who has administrative access to ArcGIS Server. If you need help with this step, see Logging in to Manager.
  2. Click Site > Web Adaptor.
  3. Click Unregister Web Adaptor Unregister Web Adaptor.
  4. On the Unregister Web Adaptor dialog box, click Yes.

The Web Adaptor is unregistered with your site.

Uninstalling the Web Adaptor

You'll use your operating system's tools to uninstall the Web Adaptor. To do so, complete the following steps:

  1. Launch the uninstallation script (based on the default installation location): ${HOME}/arcgis/webadaptor10.6/java/uninstall_WebAdaptor.

    Click Uninstall in the Uninstall dialog box to proceed with the uninstallation of the Web Adaptor.

  2. Once completed, click Done to exit.

Uninstalling the Web Adaptor silently

Performing a silent uninstallation of the Web Adaptor on Linux doesn't require an X display or user interaction during the uninstallation process. By design, the installation mode in which you are running the setup is what will be set as the default for the uninstallation mode.

To silently uninstall the Web Adaptor on Linux, launch the uninstallation script silently (based on the default installation location):

${HOME}/arcgis/webadaptor10.6/java/uninstall_WebAdaptor -s
