Forcing machines into unmanaged mode RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have about 2000 machines that I need to be forced into unmanaged mode so that I can delete them from my Forefront/MOM 2005 set up.  Is there a less time comsuming way than right clicking each individual machine?

  • uamstek,

    You can add some command lines to
    hklm\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\runonce
    in group policy.

    It will remove MOM clients (unintsall command line can be found in Uninstall registry node) on next restart.

    Look at command line utils for AD administration.

  • I am curios as well as we have computers de-commissioned all the time and the computer accounts become disabled and wanted to automate this.

  • If the computer is decommissioned, then what would AD command do for me?  I want it automated to remove from Forefront/MOM databases, like automatically grooming.
