how to uninstall McAfee Agent via ePO or uninstall manually?

Jump to solution

HI to All,

My question are, how can you uninstall the McAfee agent via ePO server?

Also I try to uninstall manually the agent via add and remove program but unfortunately the message is : you cannot uninstall agent because it is managed.

Thank You in advance for those who will help.

You have to do this command in command prompts:

X:\cd X:\Program Files (x86)\McAfee\Common Framework

X:\Program Files (x86)\McAfee\Common Framework\frminst /forceuninstall

If you have epo agent 5.x then frminst will be under below path:

C:\Program Files\McAfee\Agent\x86

Hello Aish29,

We can uninstall the agent from ePO as well

1.Goto Menu | system tree | select the system which you want to delete.

2.Actions |Directory management | Delete

3.Select "remove agent on next agent -server communication"


now the agent will be removed automatically.

Thanks.

Dear Avivash,

I think that will delete only system from the system tree but not unistall it.For uninstalling agent from epo ,user have to create a task for removal of agent.

Unfortunately nothing happens in this case ... agent is still started as a process and ēverything is still working there ... even the text extractors etc.
