Linux - Upgrade, reinstall or uninstall ESET PROTECT components

If you want to reinstall or upgrade to a more recent version, run the installation script again.

To uninstall a component (in this case ESET PROTECT Server), run the installer with the --uninstall parameter, as shown below:

sudo ./server-linux-x86_64.sh --uninstall --keep-database

If you want to uninstall other component, use appropriate package name in the command. For example ESET Management Agent:

sudo ./agent-linux-x86_64.sh --uninstall

Configuration and database files will be removed during uninstallation. To preserve database files, create a SQL dump of the database or use the --keep-database parameter.

After uninstalling, verify whether

the service eraserver is deleted.

the folder /etc/opt/eset/RemoteAdministrator/Server/ is deleted.

We recommend that you create a database dump backup before performing uninstallation if you need to restore your data.
