Updated answer for 2019 to "Remotely remove KACE agent from Mac"?

This question/answer from 2013 describes my situation EXACTLY:


Can someone provide the method to accomplish this same task in 2019 with the 9.x series of Mac agent?

do the same as suggested, just the path is now quest instead of dell

You can also create a script as follows:

(the tool is also under Linux called AMPTools.exe, so I assume the same for Mac) and run it on this machine only.

The same command with the new path to run on a Mac (the Mac version doesn't include ".exe") is shown below, however, this assumes you can sudo with an admin password:

sudo /Library/Application\ Support/Quest/KACE/bin/AMPTools uninstall 

The better idea is to run a script as shown before but using the Verify step slightly modified for a Mac, and I verified this works running as Local System:

Launch "$(KACE_INSTALL)/AMPTools" with params "uninstall"
