  • Hi,

    Thanks for the post.

    You could follow the following steps to uninstall Multihomed Agents:

    If the agent is installed remotely, then uninstall the agent by removing the agent from the Managed Computer Rules (MCRs). The agent software is uninstalled from the agent when the last configuration group to own the agent removes the agent computer from its MCRs.

    If the agent was installed manually, then uninstall the agent by using Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel. The uninstall program prompts you to select a configuration group to uninstall the agent from. After uninstalling the agent from the configuration group locally, then uninstall the agent from the DCAM. For more information, see "Uninstalling Remotely Installed Agents" (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc767002.aspx).

    At this time, I also inlcuded the following article in which you may be instrerested:


    Hope this helps.

  • Dear Miles,

    Sorry to be late, your mentioned solutions did not solve the Issue.

    1- Total of clients are very big, I cannot do the uninstall Manually

    2- The Correct procedure in my case is in http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc180747.aspx however, It did not work!!!!!!! and I am not able to remove it.

    Do you know which logs I have to check to solve this issue?
