HIP 7.0 will upgrade the 6.1 clients. Are you stating they don;t have ePO connectivity?
The issue isn't with machines that need to be upgraded from 6.1 to 7.0. Its that there are machines that have HIPS 6.1 installed where they shouldn't. Mainly desktop machines that we do not want HIPS installed at all.
So I need to remove HIPS 6.1 completely from these particular machines but I've got no way of setting up an uninstall task from ePO.
I'm wondering if I can perhaps create a command line uninstall but not sure how to?
Found a workaround. Don't know why I didn't think of it earlier but there you go.
PC's with HIPS 6.1, migrate to 7.0 and then create HIPS 7 uninstall task. Thus removing all traces of HIPS. Job done.
