Hello Ed Armstrong,
Did step 2 not on this KB not achieve the desired result? - Uninstalling Tableau Server | Tableau Software
I moved this thread to the Tableau Server Administration forum section where it is more likely to be addressed.
If you have any other information on the goal of the question, it might help. Are you trying to modify a setting of an original installation and not finding it possible unless you completely reinstall?
Port selection, as I recall, does occur on re-installation each time server is installed.
Hi Ed, in the link that Patrick sent, note that there are *two* directories mentioned in the second step. You need to remove the ProgramData directory, otherwise your previous configuration will be retained.
Thanks for the help guys.
I removed the C:\Program Files\Tableau Server and C:\ProgramData\Tableau folders but I also found some Tableau files in the C:\ProgramData\FLEXnet folder. Do you know what Tableau places into the C:\ProgramData\FLEXnet folder?
That would be licensing stuff. I call it "stuff" because I don't know anything about it. Try just ignoring it and see what happens.
