Currently, we have GroupID installed on a server that we are also using for other applications. Now we plan to move the GroupID server to a fresh Windows server. How can we completely remove GroupID from the previous server so that it will not conflict with other applications running on that server?
The steps below will guide you through the process of removing GroupID:
- Click the Windows Start button and then click Control Panel.
- On the Control Panel window, click Programs and then click Programs & Features.
- From the Uninstall or change a program list, locate and select Imanami GroupID.
- Click Uninstall and then click Yes on the confirmation dialog box.
These steps will remove Imanami GroupID from your computer. However, it will not remove the GroupID directory and the files for the Self-Service portals and the Password Center portals. You will need to remove them manually using the following instructions:
- Remove registry keys
- Remove the GroupID installation directory
- Remove the Self-Service and Password Center portals' files
- Open the Registry Editor by typing regedit in the Windows Run dialog box.
- Delete the following registry keys:
- Go the location:
(where X represents the GroupID installation drive).
- Delete the directory named GroupID 8.0.
Follow these steps to remove GroupID Self-Service and GroupID Password Center portal files:
- Open the Internet Information Service console by typing inetmgr in the Windows Run dialog box.
- Under the GroupIDSite node in the console tree, locate the portals that you have created using the Self-Service or Password Center module.
- Delete each portal one-by-one by right-clicking it and clicking Remove on the shortcut menu.
- After removing the portals, go to the following location:
C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\Temporary ASP.NET Files
- Delete each portal folder one by one.
