Manual Removal of Oracle9i from Solaris

I was asked to remove an unused Oracle 9206 database from a Solaris server. The first thing was to make a backup – because you never know 🙂

The database needed to be mounted so I could list all the files.

Select name from v$datafile;
Select name from v$controlfile;
Select member from v$logfile;

After ‘shutdown abort’ the unix administrator backed up these files.

I then deleted the same files, and hashed this database entry from listerner.ora and tnsnames.ora.
