How to Uninstall McAfee Agent and ENS from ePO in big batches.

Jump to solution

Hello. We need to uninstall the McAfee Agent and Endpoint Security Threat Prevention on several system from a domain. We were wondering if there is an easy way to uninstall these mentioned products from the ePO in batches of hundreds or thousands. 

If it is not possible to do it from the ePO. Is there any other way you recommend to so?

Thanks for posting your question in the Community forum,

If the all the client machines are managed by ePO server , The McAfee Agent which is installed on each and every client machine  should be actively communicating to ePO server.

And what ever the McAfee product what you installed including the Minor build on the client machine should also have them in the ePO server master repository then it will help to uninstall the respective McAfee product with the Product deployment task, 

Instead of Installation, Choose the option to Uninstall. With the help of McAfee Agent we can uninstall any product installation. And later delete the systems from System tree entry and it will ask the to delete the McAfee agent, Say yes to uninstall the McAfee agent.

Or you can make use of the McAfee product removal tool that you can deploy and run from Local machine or from McAfee ePO.

Mass Deployments
You can execute the EPR tool on more than one computer at a time. How this is achieved is up to the end user. The EPR tool is
provided both as an executable and a package which can be checked in and deployed from McAfee ePO.
ePO Installation & Deployments
To implement a mass ePO deployment, first check-in the EPR tool to the ePO Master repository. From there you can create a standard
ePO deployment task and deploy the EPR tool to your environment. You must supply the appropriate command line options for the
products you wish to remove, as well as the mandatory “--accepteula” argument while creating the deployment task.

Hope this will meets your requirement.
