Image INSTALL REMOVE does not?

» close window

The Question is:

Hello Wizard.
I have checked this site, but have not found the following issue. I have a
2-node cluster of Alpha2100s using a shared system disk running
OpenVMS 7.1. I am having difficulty removing an installed image for a third
party product using the INSTALL utility. This problem occurs only on one
node - no problem on the other node. When issuing an INSTALL REMOVE, the
command appears to execute returning one to the command prompt; however,
when checking the device for open files the installed image is still
present, thus preventing one from dismou
nting the device.  Any ideas as to why one node
won't remove the installed image?
Thank You

The Answer is :

  Is there some process continuing to reference the image, preventing
  the (complete) removal of the image?
