Requirements before you uninstall
You must complete the following steps before you attempt to uninstall the IBM Records Manager V8.5 English-only release.

1. Back up the file:
    IBM Records  Manager installation directory/config/IRMRepository.xml
2. Open the file IRMRepository.xml
3. Add the data source name and database type entries for the IBM Records Manager engine.

      <data name="WAS_SERVER_NAME_ENGINE">server1</data>
      <data name="WAS_ADMIN_CONNECT_TYPE_ENGINE">SOAP</data>
      <data name="WAS_ADMIN_CONNECT_PORT_ENGINE">8880</data>
      <data name="WAS_RMI_PORT_ENGINE">2809</data>
    .
    .
       <data name="ENGINE_CONFIG_DB_TYPE_ENGINE">DB2</data>
       <data name="ENGINE_CONFIG_DATA_SOURCE_NAME_ENGINE">IRMDS</data>
