Uninstall ArcGIS Data Store

You can uninstall ArcGIS Data Store for any of the following reasons:

  • You've moved the data store to another machine and no longer need ArcGIS Data Store installed on the old one.
  • You decide you do not want a standby machine in the relational data store or you want to remove one of the machines from a tile cache or spatiotemporal big data store, so you remove the data store machine and uninstall ArcGIS Data Store.
  • You no longer want to use ArcGIS Data Store.
  • You upgraded ArcGIS Data Store to 11.0 and want to remove the files for specific data store types that were never configured on a particular machine. You might do this if security practices at your organization require you to remove certain files.

Uninstalling ArcGIS Data Store also unregisters the data store from your GIS Server site. Hosted feature layers that used the data in the data store and caches used by any scene layers you published to your portal will no longer function once you uninstall the software. However, the data still exists because the data store directory remains on the server after you uninstall ArcGIS Data Store. If you later decide you need the feature layers, you can reinstall ArcGIS Data Store and register the data store with the same GIS Server site.

Caution:

Before uninstalling ArcGIS Data Store, shut down all nonessential applications.

Use one of the following methods to uninstall ArcGIS Data Store from a machine:

Uninstall with the user interface

Complete the following steps to uninstall all data store types using the user interface:

  1. On Microsoft Windows desktop, click Start > Control Panel (switch to Classic View, if necessary) and Programs and Features.
  2. Select ArcGIS Data Store from the Programs list.
  3. Select Remove to remove ArcGIS Data Store from this machine.

Uninstall ArcGIS Data Store silently

To completely uninstall ArcGIS Data Store from a machine without being prompted for input (silently), run the msiexec command with the /qb option, and use /x to specify the software code appropriate to the version of the software you are uninstalling.

To uninstall ArcGIS Data Store 11.0 silently, run the following command from the command line:

msiexec /x {ABCEFF81-861D-482A-A20E-8542814C03BD} /qb

To uninstall ArcGIS Data Store 10.9.1 silently, run this command from the command line:

Uninstall specific types of data stores

You can remove data store types that you did not configure and do not need. For example, if you installed all data store types on a machine but only configured the relational data store on that machine, you can uninstall all the other types.

To uninstall a data store type that you do not use, you can modify the ArcGIS Data Store installation using a wizard or by running the ArcGIS Data Store setup file from a Windows command prompt.

Do not uninstall a data store type that you configured with a hosting server.

Modify the ArcGIS Data Store installation using a wizard

To use a wizard to uninstall a data store type from an ArcGIS Data Store installation, you can use the Windows options to modify software installations—Apps & features or Programs and Features—to modify the ArcGIS Data Store installation. Doing so opens the ArcGIS Data Store installation wizard.

  1. When the ArcGIS Data Store installation wizard opens, choose Modify on the Program Maintenance dialog box and click Next.
  2. On the Select Features dialog box, choose the red x from the drop-down menu next to the data store type to be uninstalled.

    You can uninstall multiple types at once, but do not uninstall data store types that are configured with a hosting server.

  3. Click Next.
  4. Click Install on the Ready to Modify the Program dialog box to uninstall the data store (or stores) that you chose to remove from the installation.

If ArcGIS Data Store is installed on more than one machine, repeat these steps on the other ArcGIS Data Store machine (or machines) to remove the same data store type.

Run the setup file from a command prompt

You can run the setup file from a Windows command prompt to uninstall any data store types that you did not configure.

Run the command prompt as an administrator, change to the directory where the ArcGIS Data Store setup file resides on the machine, run the Setup.exe file with the REMOVE option. The syntax is as follows:

Setup.exe /qb ACCEPTEULA=YES USER_NAME=<ArcGIS Data Store account username> PASSWORD=<ArcGIS Data Store account password> REMOVE={Relational | Spatiotemporal | TileCache | Object | Graph}

For example, type the following to remove the object and graph stores for an ArcGIS Data Store installation for which the ArcGIS Data Store account username and password are mydomain/myaccount and Mypassw0rd respectively:

Setup.exe /qb ACCEPTEULA=YES USER_NAME=mydomain/myaccount PASSWORD=Mypassw0rd REMOVE=Object,Graph

If ArcGIS Data Store is installed on more than one machine, run the same command on the other ArcGIS Data Store machine (or machines) to remove the same data store type.
