Today, on a clean build server, the VSF 5.0 install decided to hang at 50% for an hour. I decided to kill the install and bounce the server.
Coming back, I tried to re-install the software, no go. First you have to uninstall the existing software.
OK, tried that. Uninstall fails at 18% – file not found.
A repair maybe? Repair fails at 38% – file not found.
What’s a sys admin to do? Luckily there is a script called: VxCleanup.bat that lives in the toolsvpiCleanupScript 32 or 64.
The script will try to uninstall first, if that fails, ALL Veritas software, registry entries and folders will be removed. So that’s the bad news. Now you have to reinstall all your Veritas software…

Very cool feature. Keep up the great work, Google!
It has been some time since I posted but just wanted to let everyone on the latest developments.
I have taken a new job with GE Medical and will be working on their server-build team. In the mean time I have been busy brain dumping to my new replacements at NRC so they can keep the ship afloat. Most of my time has been consumed with this. As soon as life returns to normal, so will my posts.
Thanks for hanging in there!
This is a cool.
Idea came from the Perl Advent Calendar, comes the SysAdvent Blog. Counting up the 24 days before Christmas, the blog will offer one nugget of SysAdmin wisdom. So far on day 3, there is some good reading here.
Thanks to the guys of this blog for putting this together!
