How to uninstall SCCM 2012 agent

How to uninstall SCCM 2012 agent


I had this on my old blog a while back, but its a common question that I get asked. It seems that a few of you wish to uninstall the SCCM agent (or at least want to know that you can uninstall it)

I will blog on how to script this in a later post. But, for now this is how you remove it manually.

From the command promt type (Start>Run>cmd)

C:\Windows\system32> cd\ 
C:\>cd windows 
C:\windows> cd ccmsetup 
C:\Windows\ccmsetup>ccmsetup /uninstall

Keep an eye on the un-installation using the log files from C:\Windows\ccmsetup\ccmsetup.log

Once that’s complete delete the following files in bold

Remove the Machine Certs from the SMS store

To do this
Start>Run>MMC>Click File>Add/Remove Snap-in…>Certificates>Click Add>Computer Account>Local Computer>SMS

Delete the certificates in the SMS store.
