K1000 - Remove Old Software Before Installing New Application
Really could use some advice/strategy on how to tackle a particular issue. Our managed security provider is switching security products and has put the burden of removing their old software and installing their new software on us. They've provided us with an executable to remove the old software and then an .msi installer for the new software. We have about 700 nodes that need to be upgraded. The difficulty I'm running into is developing a method to accomplish this task while minimizing the amount of time where the machine has no security software at all. I'm also concerned about installing the new software first and having two competing security software packages on the system at the same time.
Curious on strategy if anyone has ever been in a similar scenario. We'd like to use our K1000 to accomplish the task although I'm not sure if we would need to script out something or if there is a way for it to be handled as a managed installation.
Thank you all!
