Help with uninstall of Semi-Managed Application (Script, Bat, Task Chain?) and replacement with new install (Symantec to McAfee)
Hi All, new to KACE deployment and I have a task to complete, and could use some pointers, as I think I'm missing a few basics and could use some help.
My object is to remove Symantec AV and replace it with McAfee AV.
I have 4 different versions of Symantec showing in Software, each with the Uninstall command listed. (Only 1 of which shows up as a managed installation)
manually initiating a simple Batch file with the MSIexec uninstaller command works fine for a local uninstall, but I'm unable to push it via KACE.
Ideally, I'd run an uninstall of Symantec, which would then immediately trigger the install of McAfee upon completion.
Any suggestions? Been there, done that?
I've tried to replicate steps here:
and will be testing this:
.Go to the "scripting" tab in the K1 ....
Go to "Tasks" .....
Choose "Run a batch file"
Insert the script into the field provided......
Name it anything you want..........
Then add the device you want to run it on
in the "devices " tab........
Then........ "Run Now"
In the ........"Windows run as" Section of the script....
