Summary

This article helps to remove SVM Agents from clients by utilizing an alternative method of deployment of a logon script that will run a small bat file that will then run the Uninstall.exe removal tool of the Agent. 

Synopsis

The below steps list the process of creating a GPO deployment of a logon script that will uninstall your SVM2018 Agents from Clients in the domain:

  • Create your Logon script or just reuse the one we provided hereby:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

@echo off
if EXIST "C:\Program Files (x86)\Flexera Software\Corporate Software Inspector Agent\Uninstall.exe" GOTO uninstallx86
if EXIST "C:\Program Files\Flexera Software\Corporate Software Inspector Agent\Uninstall.exe" GOTO uninstall
exit

:uninstallx86
echo "unistallx86"
cd "C:\Program Files (x86)\Flexera Software\Corporate Software Inspector Agent\"
Uninstall.exe /S
echo "SVM2018 Agent Uninstalled"
exit

:uninstall
echo "uninstall"
cd "C:\Program Files\Flexera Software\Corporate Software Inspector Agent\"
Uninstall.exe /S
echo "SVM2018 Agent Uninstalled"
exit
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
  • Save your script as Uninstall.bat file (to execute as a batch task)
  • Create a New GPO that will be used to carry out the Logon script to your machines (best-practice)
    • Open the Group Management Console
    • Active Directory 2012: Server Manager/Tools/Group Policy Management
    • Active Directory 2008: Start/Administrative Tools/Group Policy Management
    • Expand the AD Domain Tree, right-click on the Domain/OU you want to apply the policy on, and select 'Create GPO in this domain and Link it here'
    • In the new dialog, give the GPO a corresponding name, then click OK.
    • Right-click on the GPO and select Edit.
    • In the Group Policy Management Editor, go to User Configuration/Policies/Windows Settings/Scripts (Logon/Logoff)
    • Double-click Logon in the right pane.
    • Click Show Files (a folder whose name ends in User\Scripts\Logon is displayed)
    • Note the folder and Copy your 'Uninstall.bat' script into it.
    • In the Logon Properties window, click Add.
    • Click Browse to open the logon script directory, then select your logon script file and click OK.
    • Verify that the logon script appears in the list of the Logon Properties window, then close with OK.
