Stop Managing (Uninstall ESET Management Agent)

This task will uninstall ESET Management Agent from selected target devices. If a desktop is selected, the task will remove the ESET Management Agent. If mobile device is selected, the task will cancel MDM enrollment of the device.

Important

We recommend that you reset some settings that you do not want to keep (for example, password protection) to default settings using a policy before the device is removed from management. Also, all tasks running on the Agent will be abandoned. The Running, Finished or Failed execution status of this task may not be displayed accurately in ESMC Web Console depending on replication. After the Agent is uninstalled, you can manage your security product via the integrated EGUI or eShell.
