Issue

  • Perform a push uninstall to a password-protected or non-password-protected client using ESET PROTECT

Details

The Software Uninstall task is used to uninstall ESET products from client computers. If you are uninstalling ESET Management Agent, ESET products managed by that Agent may retain some settings after the Agent is uninstalled. We recommend that you reset some settings, for example, password protection, to the default settings using a policy before the client device is removed from management. All tasks currently running on the Agent will be abandoned. The running, finished or failed execution status of this task may not be displayed accurately in ESET PROTECT Web Console depending on replication.
