You can do this with a server task - there is an action that allows you to act on systems from a text file:

Create a text file with the names of the machines, one name on each line.

Create a new server task with an action of "Load systems by file" and a sub-action of "Delete systems"

When you run the task, the machines listed in the file will be deleted. I would suggest testing this with a single machine first, in case there are any unexpected results.

So you want to run a batch file or some sort of file calling a command on the workstation? Or on the Server?

Hi dfa 

To be clear, are you trying to remove the management agent from an endpoint, or delete a system from the system tree?

I would like a script that deletes from eposerver DB , starting from file .

I removed about 500 computers from AD , now I want to delete the same PC from eposerver , and I would not come to remove them manually one by one.

If your using AD Sync, this method can also remove machines from your system tree when you remove the Computer Accounts from AD, but this would be done by a scheduled server task so would be delayed by the interval between your task.
