Removing Windows Intune client (3 methods)

Posted: January 30, 2014 in Uncategorized

Hi there, just a quick and simple overview on how to remove a Windows Intune client installation. The best way of achieving this would be to retire the client from the Windows Intune admin console (method 1), however there are some scenario’s in which that is no option anymore. Although the Intune client has a lot of similarities with the Configuration Manager client the Intune client does not come with a lot of command line options. Uninstalling a recent version of the client can only be done with the help of some batch scripts and an executable which can be downloaded from Microsoft. I found the script after deciphering this Japanese technet blog 🙂 http://blogs.technet.com/b/jpintune/archive/2013/04/03/windows-intune.aspx

Anyhoops, you can download the tool by clicking this link: http://support.microsoft.com/common/survey.aspx?scid=sw%3ben-us%3b3097&altStyle=MFE&renderOption=OverrideDefault&showpage=1&fr=1&nofrbrand=1

After executing the exe some files will be extracted. Copy these files to the client and execute the batch files (method 2):

  • AgentUninstall_AIS.cmd
  • AgentUninstall_Intune.cmd

Capture

After some time the folder C:\Program Files\Microsoft\OnlineManagement should only hold some logfiles. Reboot the client.

At this moment you can enroll the client into Windows Intune again or install a SCCM client to manage the client again.

OR…….. 

  1. Open an admin command prompt
  2. Navigate to C:\Program Files\Microsoft\OnlineManagement\Common
  3. Run “ProvisioningUtil /UninstallAgents WindowsIntune” (method 3)

Now you have 3 methods of removing the Windows Intune client!

    You could also use the following command to call the uninstall with WMI: wmic product where “name like ‘intune%'” call uninstall

    Slight type in my last post, should be an additional wild card before Intune: wmic product where “name like ‘%intune%'” call uninstall
