Cannot Uninstall Kace Agent Properly

I am having issues uninstalling my KACE client. When I run the installer and I click remove it moves to the next step and it asks me to enter a valid server name. The issue is that it does not give me a box to type the server name. Has anyone else seen this before? Is there a fix for this?

  • How are you attempting to uninstall it? This does not usually show up in the add/remove software assuming Windows. - worzie 2 years ago
    • I am just using the ampagent executable and I selected the remove option for the KACE software. - hixson 2 years ago

If checking the uninstall option in the K1000 isn't working, and the machine is still checking in or showing online, you can create a script to issue the cmd line.

"$(KACE_APP_DIR)\AMPTools.exe uninstall  all-kuid" or just the all flag if you wish to keep the kuid.

  • Thank you I will definitely try this on the problem user's computer. Just in case this does not work is there any other potential resolution? - hixson 2 years ago

on one of those look at C:\ProgramData\Quest\KACE\amp.conf does the host look correct?  if not you can use amptools to fix vs uninstall

$(KACE_APP_DIR)\AMPTools.exe host=kbox.acme.com
