Not possible with SEPM as of now. There is an idea already posted hopefully should get integrated in future releases.

There is no option to remote uninstall from the SEPM.

You can try SEPPrep. See these links:

Hi Ravishankar,

Thank you for posting in Symantec community.

I would be glad to answer your query.

Q. Is there any way where we can uninstall a symantec client through the SEPM.

Uninstall for a small group of clients --> For a handful of clients we recommend using the standard Windows uninstall method. Please find a step-by-step guide to this process in the knowledge base document "Uninstalling the client".

Uninstall for a large group of clients--> When accessing each client physically is not practical, there are many ways to automate the process.  While we cannot list all possible options in this article, here are several documented processes:

For removing previous version of Symantec products you can use the SEPprep tool:

...otherwise please note if you are upgrading to newer SEP version - uninstalling of previous SEP client is not necessary. Installer can without issue migrate from previous versions.

Hope that helps!!
