How to delete ibase


I wanted to know how to delete unused Installed base? Not the components but the actual root because I have several ibases besides "1"

I've tried using function module IB_COM_DELETE_IBASE but I don't know what to put on fields I_IBIB_HANDLE and I_IBASE

I've also tried to use transaction SARA but even when I've flagged for deletion the unused ibases still doesn't detect them as marked for deletion.

I've checked sap note 1049800 but that doesn't solve because I'm not using CUT as I don't want to delete components but the entire ibase (and have already applied the support package that contains the note)

Hope you can help me
