Uninstall SingleStoreDB

Select a method to uninstall SingleStoreDB

  • If you cluster was installed using MemSQL Ops and was later migrated to using SingleStore Tools, and/or is currently managed by SingleStore Tools: Uninstall using SingleStore Tools

Uninstall using SingleStoreDB Toolbox

Depending on which version of SingleStore Toolbox you use to manage your cluster, you may remove the existing cluster either by a single command, or via sequence of commands.

Removing an existing cluster can be useful for deploying a new SingleStoreDB cluster in its place, or after moving the existing cluster to another set of hosts.

Using either method, the SingleStore Tools-related binaries (Toolbox and client) can safely be deleted once the SingleStoreDB cluster has been removed. If you plan to deploy a new SingleStoreDB cluster, there is no need to delete these binaries.

SingleStoreDB Toolbox 1.6.4 and later
