VMware Server 2: CentOS 5.3 guest: If I delete an user from the system, would I delete all the apps installed under that user?

Hello Experts,

I just installed Oracle 11g on my CentOS guest. However, the install did not go well because I did not follow install procedures. I want to start over. If I delete the user, would I also delete the app?
how can roll back CentOS guest as it was originally install to start over the Oracle 11g?

thx experts

In future, the best method to do this would be to take a snapshot before starting your Oracle Installation.

VMware Server 2.0 can support a maximum of 1 Snapshot.

This will reduce the time needed to spend troubleshooting since you can revert back to the Snapshot and start your installation all over again.

Please note that Snapshot is not equivalent to long term backups, its a PIT (Point in Time) of your Guest OS. Snapshots should be deleted as soon as you have achieved your objective.
