Uninstalling Xsan

When the standard troubleshooting steps do not work for an xSAN client it is sometimes a good idea to just uninstall the software and reinstall it. You also may decide to repurpose an aging system out of the xSAN. To uninstall xSAN from a system:
  1. Open xSAN Admin from /Applications/Server
  2. Unmount all of the volumes for the system you are uninstalling.
  3. Backup the /Library/Filesystems/Xsan/config directory for the system.
  4. Open the Uninstall Xsan.pkg file from the CD or other location it is available at.
  5. At the Welcome ot the Xsan Uninstaller Installer screen click continue.
  6. At the Select a Destination for Uninstall screen, click on the volume you want to uninstall the xSAN software from and click Continue.
  7. At the Easy Install screen, click Install.
  8. Authenticate to the Uninstaller at the Authenticate prompt and click on OK
  9. At the warning that you will need to restart your computer, click Continue Installation.
  10. When the uninstall process is complete, click Restart to reboot the computer you just uninstalled xSAN from.
Note: You will need to uninstall Xsan using an uninstaller of the same version that is installed.
