To resolve this issue, when uninstalling Tableau Server, you must manually delete the following folders, as mentioned in step 5 and 6 of the Modifying Tableau Server Authentication Method:
Tableau Server 8.1 and later versions: C:\Program Files\Tableau\Tableau Server
- Note: If you are running the 32-bit version of Tableau Server on a 64-bit operating system, replace C:\Program Files\Tableau with C:\Program Files (x86)\Tableau. Also, the above drive and paths may vary depending on where Tableau Server is installed.
Tableau Server 8.0 and earlier versions:
- On a 32-bit computer: C:\Program Files\Tableau\Tableau Server
- On a 64-bit computer: C:\Program Files (x86)\Tableau\Tableau Server
CauseThis issue is typically caused when both the above folders are not deleted. By default, the C:\ProgramData folder is hidden.
