What are the steps to manually uninstall the Deployment Solution?

Answer

  1. Remove Deployment Solution from the Notification Server from a command line:
              "C:\Program Files\Altiris\Notification Server\bin\AeXConfig" /unconfigure 74093212-3CBB-4E0E-AB79-6283D44DB5A1
  2. Remove the Deployment Web Console from Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel. To manually remove the Deployment Web Console from the Add or Remove Programs, regedit and browse to the following key and delete it:
        HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Altiris Deployment Web Console.
  3. Delete the DSWeb subweb from the IIS Manager Default Web site.
  4. Delete the Altiris/DS subweb from the IIS Manager Default Web site.
  5. Delete the following folders (and all the contents) from under the C:\Program Files\Altiris folder:
              C:\Program Files\Altiris\Deployment Solution
              C:\Program Files\Altiris\Deployment Web Console
              C:\Program Files\Altiris\Notification Server\Library
              C:\Program Files\Altiris\Notification Server\NSCap\Bin\Win32\X86\AClient Package
              C:\Program Files\Altiris\Notification Server\NSCap\Bin\Win32\X86\Deployment Server Install
              C:\Program Files\Altiris\Notification Server\NSCap\Bin\Win32\X86\Deployment Server Package
              C:\Program Files\Altiris\Notification Server\NSCap\Bin\Win32\X86\DSUtil
              C:\Program Files\Altiris\Setup Files\{anything with Deployment in the name}
  6. To manually remove the Deployment Solution from the Add or Remove Programs, regedit and browse to the following key and delete it:
         HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{1CA649C9-9EBA-4D91-B16A-2E3C466407E8}.
  7. Backup the Altiris database. Run the script attached to this article. This zipped executable will remove the tab and any other items left in the database after the uninstall of Deployment Solution. Extract the executable from the .zip file and double click PurgeDSItems.exe.
    CAUTION: This script leaves behind data that will cause problems with other solutions.
  8. The better method would be to use Add/Remove programs or AexConfig with the Core config file for the installed version of Deployment Solution.

Note: The database will be altered. It is strongly recommended that the Altiris database be backed up first.
