Will completely wiping a computer remove all McAfee products and return licenses?

Jump to solution

If a computer has certain McAfee products installed (Agent, Threat Prevention, etc...), will formatting the laptop remove those and return the licenses to the ePO server? Or will I have to remove all products first before wiping?

I'm not aware that there is any form of enforcement. Licenses are not "assigned" per say. The ePO server just reports based in the number of managed systems.

So, no not that I'm aware of. The licensing module is based on 180 days. To "de-assign a license", the system needs to be removed from ePO

So I could format the computer and remove that PC from ePO and I should be good?
