DPM Client Service doesnt clean up after uninstall RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there,

    We are trying to uninstall the agents on all our servers. The uninstall succeeds (2010 version), but the files on the disk and the service remain and dont get cleaned.

    How do we clean the service and local files after a uninstall of this agent?

  • Hi

    You can look here for manually removing a service

    On the local machine you can delete the DPM directory. I did this last night after uninstalling and re-installing a new agent on my SharePoint server.

    You can also look at the registry but that is dangerous if you remove the wrong thing, always make a backup before making any changes:

    Go to Start, Run, type Regedit and navigate to the following key :
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Services
