Uninstalling an Agent Now

You can remove an agent from a computer immediately. You might uninstall an agent immediately if you do not want to wait for the Agent Manager to automatically remove it at the next Managed Computer scan. Agent Managers uninstall unneeded agents after the uninstall delay period. For more information, see Configuring Global Agent Manager Settings.

The Uninstall Now procedure removes an agent immediately and excludes the computer from the Managed Computers list.

To uninstall an agent immediately:

  1. Expand Microsoft Operations Manager (default) in the left pane.
  2. Expand Configuration in the left pane.
  3. Click Agent Managers in the left pane.
  4. In the right pane, click the Agent Manager responsible for the agent you want to uninstall. For more information about determining the Agent Manager responsible for an agent, see Monitoring the Agent Status of a Component Computer.
  5. Click Action on the menu bar.
  6. Click View Managed Computers on the Action menu.
  7. Click the computer with the agent you want to uninstall.
  8. Click Uninstall Now, and then click OK.
