Remote uninstall old net client
« on: June 28, 2011, 10:09:37 AM »
Hello,

Could you add a functionality to uninstall the old net client directly from the SBC ?

For medium network it will be helpful ....

Thks

Will be nice for migrating from 4.x and unmanaged 5/6.x to managed 6.x version

the managed clients should install right over the installed clients
as far as I know this should work properly in de release version.

in ADNM there is an option to uninstall the clients, the only drawback is that when the client is uninstalled the status cant be reported anymore because the client is gone, therefor the ADNM status stay forever in running.

I just figured that the ASWCLEAR proces could be part of the console and transmitted to the client for uninstallation task. This proces can report back if it is finished uninstalling (hint to avast).
