Uninstalling Experience Analytics databases
Uninstalling databases is a permanent operation and results in the loss of all data that was not backed up.
Lost data includes, but is not limited to, event object definitions, report definitions, and then data they reference.
For most operations, the Experience Analytics Database Manager stops all Experience Analytics services necessary. However, it does not stop the Transport Service. If StatsLogger was enabled in the pipeline, the Transport Service must be stopped manually before continuing to uninstall the Experience Analyticsdatabases.
If you have installed Acoustic Experience Analytics (Tealeaf) cxReveal on a server that is remote from the Portal server, then you must remove the server reference from the Portal Management page.
