Uninstall product software from systems

You can uninstall all product software from managed systems in a group using the existing product deployment task. You can use this process when you are done evaluating products.

Before you begin

  • You must know the group name of the systems where the product software is installed to use the uninstall feature in Product Deployment.
  • If there are any systems you don't want to uninstall the product software from, move them to a different group before starting this process.

This product software uninstallation process uses the Product Deployment task created during your initial software installation. When the uninstallation task is complete, all systems in the System Tree group specified at installation have all product software removed.

Task

  1. Select MenuSoftwareProduct Deployment.
  2. From Advanced Options, select Advanced Product Deployment.
  3. In the System Tree list, select the deployment task that you used to initially create the installation URL.
  4. With the product deployment task selected, in the Action list, click Uninstall.
  5. Click OK.
    The configured product software is removed from all systems in the selected System Tree group. When the uninstallation is finished, the message Uninstall Successful appears with the number of updated systems shown in parentheses.
  6. To delete the product deployment task, select it from the product deployment list and select Delete from the Action list.
  7. Delete the associated System Tree group.
    1. Select MenuSystemsSystem Tree.
    2. Click System Tree ActionsDelete Group.
