This parameter can be used to test the script without removing the packages.

The package remove commands that would have been used to remove each package are displayed. This may be useful to do a test package remove without actually removing the packages, to see in what order the packages would have been removed, or to capture the commands used to remove the packages for use in another script.

Executes the script looking for packages with "Teradata" in the package name, but skipping the check against the known list of Teradata Tools and Utilities packages
This may be useful for packages the script does not know about or additional "Teradata" packages (not Teradata Tools and Utilities) that you may want to remove.
Use this parameter with care, particularly if run on a Teradata DBS node, as important Database packages could be removed.
