Hello,
I have searched the documentation and could not find the procedure to remove/uninstall nagiosXI.
I have installed it using the script https://assets.nagios.com/downloads/nagiosxi/install.sh
Is there any uninstall script for the same?
Kindly let me know.
Thanks and Regards
Ravi Kumar

The simplest thing to do is to reinstall the OS.

This would be the last thing i would prefer to do. I just wanted to know why uninstall process is missing from the Nagios documentation.

"Cattle, not pets" and all that ;)

@benhank produced this a few years back, I dunno if it still works:
https://exchange.nagios.org/directory/U ... pt/details

There was also an official script (and documentation) produced for uninstalling that used to ship with Nagios XI, but I dunno if it's still maintained because it's not included in the most recent release:

Re-installing the OS really is the best option. If that's cumbersome, I'd refer you to the "Cattle, not pets" concept explained in the above StackExchange post.
