Remote uninstallation

Created: 26 Oct 2009 • Updated: 21 May 2010 | 3 comments

I cannot find a way to initiate a remote uninstall on a client. I am running SEP SBE v12.0. Where do I find this option? I should'nt have to go to each users computer and manually uninstall from "Add or Remove Programs"..!!

That feature is not available on SEP12 SBE at this time. You could post this to the ideas section for our dev team to add to the list. https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/security/i...

You can only  uninstall the Symantec Endpoint Protection Small Business Edition client by using the Windows Add or Remove Programs utility.

Note: If the client software uses a policy that blocks hardware devices, the devices are blocked after you uninstall the software. Use the Windows Device Manager to unblock the devices.

You can use from  CompetitiveUninstall   SEP12\Tools\CompetitiveUninstall to remove the SEP client Remotly

Read the pdf first before running it.

BUT THE TOOL IS NOT SUPPORTED BY SYMANTEC.

You can create a batch file using msiexec and deploy it using AD

just type msiexec on run, u'll find the syntax to uninstall. Then create a batch file
