Can Backup Exec 2010 Remote Agent on client machines be removed by running a removal task from Backup Exec Server?

Thanks!

Hi there,

Unfortunately not...it can install remotely, but not do what you require.
Add/Remove Programs would be the way to do this.

Laters!

This is strange. That means if i have 100 computers i have to access each and every pc individually and remove it. There must be some sort of removal script.

Thanks!

Hi,

All I can find are these 2 links for you to read up on...

http://seer.entsupport.symantec.com/docs/232443.htm

http://seer.entsupport.symantec.com/docs/299150.htm

What I can also suggest it making your way over to the Ideas section (https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/backup-and-archiving/ideas), and post having a remote removal tool from a media server as an idea. The more "thumbs up" you get, the more chance you have of your idea being taken into account. It does make sense having something like that available...

Thanks! I will do that but don't know if somebody has already asked for it.

=) Don't worry, an admin will then tell you if it is a duplicate. Simply ask for the link in that case, and give a thumb's up.
If this has helped, would you mind closing it off?

Hi there,

If this helped at all, can you close off with the solution?
