I haven’t seen a lot of chatter about the Oracle Database Deinstallation Tool for Oracle Clusterware and Real Application Clusters on the web. In fact, a search in Metalink for the name of the actual tool—clusterdeconfig—returned no documents or Metalink forum threads with mention of the tool. I found that to be strange. This is a very helpful tool because things can go wrong when installing CRS and having a deinstall tool is better than the typical wild rm(1) command execution that is usually necessary to get back to a clean state for an installation retry.

That was a chore but I did find it so I thought I’d pass on a link to you. The following is a link to the Zip file. I hope you have a fast internet connection because it is over 60MB:
The sshUserSetup.sh Script
When you unzip the clusterdeconfig.zip file you’ll notice it contains a script called sshUserSetup.sh that you may find helpful in setting up pass-through ssh.
