Guidelines regarding the CommandCentral Storage (CCS) 5.0 Kit installation\Total_Cleanup utility Script
For upgrade installation always use a local copy of the Kit. Do not use a kit from shared/mapped location.
If not upgrading, before installing a new kit makes sure you use the system Add/Remove Programs (ARP) panel to uninstall the installed CCS product.
If CCS uninstall fails, only then use the Total_Cleanup utility.
Total_Cleanup utility is only for windows and this article does not apply to another Operating System
Download the complete Total_Cleanup zip file ( below to a temporary directory on the local machine, extract using full stored paths and double click on the CCSCleanup.bat which asks the administrator the install directory path for non-default CCS installations. The script then opens up command windows as it uninstalls the packages, deletes directories, registry entries, services, etc. It then recommends to restart the host.
Never try to uninstall installed CCS products using Total_Cleanup utility.
This utility should only be used for the failed uninstallation scenario or to make sure nothing is left behind post uninstallation.
If an administrator sees any left behind services in Windows Services Panel then running Total_Cleanup as described below and restarting the machine as recommended by the Total_Cleanup utility will remove the services.
