So with most plugins there is stuff left behind after you remove the plugin from the plugin manager in CW Automate. Most of the time this is stuff like Automate scripts left in the /scripts folder of the control center or database tables that held the data for the plugin. Automate does not clean up really well so it also leaves the DLL files behind on the server and on the control center computers.
Control Center DLL File
The dll file will be located at C:\ProgramData\Labtech Plugins\yourhostname\nameofplugin.dll
Automate Host DLL File
The dll file will be located at C:\Program Files\LabTech\Plugins\nameofplugin.dll
By default the naming convention for Automate plugin tables is in the following format (plugin_nameofvender_nameofplugin_tablename)
This means that all our plugin tables would start with a prefix of one of the following based on date of plugin.
Code: Select all
DROP TABLE IF EXISTS plugin_sw_nameofplugin_nameoftable;
By default if it exists we drop our scripts into the /scripts/maintenance subfolder and will have the name of the plugin and our name abbreviated in the title of the script.
Example: P4L - Expiry Maintenance Script
You can find and remove these from your scripts folder from within the control center consoles.
Automate host plugin logs
Automate host keeps a log of every activity our plugins preform on an host via automation instructions. Those logs are kept at C:\Program Files\LabTech\Logs\ on the automate server. They also prefix with plugin_nameofplugin.txt
