how to remove sccm from server RRS feed

  • Question

  • had a hardware failure on our primary site.

    stood up new server had a good backup.

    went to recover site and near the end after database and copying files recovery failed due to waik not installed.

    installed waik and restarted sccm install.  it detected previous failed version and was to uninstall that install.

    next screen stated that you cannot uninstall this site due to the secondary sites.  you must removed secondary sites prior to continuing.

    looks like catch 22.  can't delete secondary.  anyone have any ideas like deleteing SMS from registry and trying again since the install failed.

  • Why don't you just reinstall the server (OS) and restore from backup again (this time installing all prerequisites first)?

  • 1. The Component Manager will attempt to remove the role for 1440 minutes (24 hours) and then it will time out. After this all errors related to the role in question will cease and re-installation of the role can be attempted. If the role has still not been uninstalled, proceed to step 2.

    2. Make SCCM think that the component has exceeded its time limit. You can accellerate this by modifying a registry key for SCCM.

    To accelerate the removal timeout, modify the following registry value:

    HKLMSoftwareMicrosoftSMSComponentsSMS_SITE_COMPONENT_MANAGERComponent ServersSERVERNAMEDeinstallation Start Time

    Change the value of Deinstallation Start Time to 1. Stop and restart the SMS_SITE_COMPONENT_MANAGER service on the Site Server to force a Site Component Manager update cycle. The Site Component Manager log should indicate the deinstallation process has timed out as follows:

    Bootstrap operation failed.
    Deinstalled service <service_name>.
    Bootstrap operations aborted.
    Deinstallation failed.  Deinstall retry interval of 1440 minutes exceeded.
    Component assumed to be deinstalled; deinstallation will not be retried.

  • open cmd as administrator, go to windows\ccmsetup folder and run ccmsetup.exe /uninstall.

    Your suggestion only uninstalls the client, not the site server.
