This section describes how to remove GemFire from your system.
If you installed Pivotal GemFire from a ZIP file, shut down any running GemFire processes and then simply delete the product tree to uninstall the product. No additional registry entries or system modifications are needed.
If the old version of GemFire was installed with an RPM, uninstall using
rpm -e Pivotal_GemFire_XXX
XXX is replaced by the GemFire version number and also corresponds to the name of the product installation directory. As an example, the command for removing the GemFire 8.2.5 release would be
rpm -e Pivotal_GemFire_825
If the old version of GemFire was installed with DEBs, uninstall using
dpkg --remove pivotal-gemfire
If you installed Pivotal GemFire by using macOS brew packages, issue the following command:
brew uninstall gemfire
