The uninstallation script performs the following steps:

  1. Searches for packages with "Teradata" in the package name installed on the system.
  2. Creates an internal list of currently installed Teradata Tools and Utilities packages.
  3. Checks the created list against a list of known Teradata Tools and Utilities packages (so only Teradata Tools and Utilities packages will be removed).
  4. Reorders the created list to remove dependency products last.
  5. Displays the list with additional information so you can decide whether to remove the packages or not.

After the package removal process is complete, the script checks to see if any Teradata Tools and Utilities packages remain on the system. If any Teradata Tools and Utilities packages are found, it displays a list of those packages.

Not all packages with "Teradata" in the package name are Teradata Tools and Utilities packages. Teradata DBS packages, for example, might contain "Teradata" in the package name, but would not be in the list of known Teradata Tools and Utilities packages.
