You can possibly use EEDK to push out a script (or SCCM) to use the command line or you can download the removal tool from the download site and push it out to your clients to remove the agent.

To remove it completely, you would run frminst /forceuinstall.  The command line options to remove the agent are in the agent install guide.

Uninstall the agent completely or just take it out of managed mode?  If you have ENS or VSE that needs to run updates, you need an agent (managed or unmanaged) in order to get updates.

To take it out of managed mode, you would delete the systems from the epo console and check the box to also remove the agent.  That won't remove the agent, but will take it out of managed mode so it is a stand-alone agent, leaving ENS or VSE the ability to still get updates.

To remove it completely, you would run frminst /forceuinstall.  The command line options to remove the agent are in the agent install guide.

We had VSE but we already remove it.
Now we just need to uninstall completely MA from all servers.
