How to: Uninstalling Elasticsearch


This document describes the steps to uninstall Elasticsearch.

Elasticsearch is used for searching feeds in the timeline (see How-to: Enabling search for feeds in timeline) and for the Search All feature (see How-to: Installing and configuring Search All feature).

By uninstalling Elasticsearch, the Elasticsearch service will be removed from the web server. This will not affect your Exact Synergy Enterprise installation, but you will not be able to use Elasticsearch as a search provider for searching feeds in the timeline or use the Search All feature.

Uninstalling Elasticsearch

  • Open the command prompt. Right-click and select Run as administrator.
  • Locate the bin folder of your Elasticsearch installation. For example, c:\Program Files\Exact Synergy Enterprise\elasticsearch-6.6.2\bin and copy the location of this folder as highlighted in the following screen:

  • In the command prompt window, type: cd <space> and paste the location of your Elasticsearch bin folder and press ENTER.

  • Type: elasticsearch-service.bat remove and press ENTER.

  • Depending on your operating system and settings, a user account control message may be displayed. Click Yes to continue.
  • The message “The service 'elasticsearch-service-x86' has been removed” or “The service 'elasticsearch-service-x64' has been removed” will be displayed in command prompt window.
  • Elasticsearch is now uninstalled. To be able to still search the feeds in the timeline, you have to select a different search provider at Modules ? System ? Setup ? Social Collaboration ? Settings. For more information, see Defining social collaboration settings and How-to: Enabling search for feeds in timeline.
