In the same PDF, look for the section on recording a silent INSTALLation file for the agent. Use these same instructions, but instead of installing, uninstall. Then try using the generated .iss in a BLPackage or something. Not sure of all the details, but see if .iss file is usable.
Sorry, which PDF was that?
I believe it is BladeLogicInstallation.pdf. It's in the same PDF where you were reading about how to Uninstall agents.
Found it, thank you. I will give it a try.
Ok, I have got it working. Instead of duplicating the command string from the installation docs (which did not work), I merely ran the uninstall binary with the "-r" switch. It recorded an ISS answer file in %WINDIR%, which I was able to copy out and re-use.
Still testing it out, but so far it looks like it's working as I expected it to. Thanks for the advice!
I just tested how to uninstall the "old" agents silently.
You have to create the iss file for this: you uninstall the agent manually and record this in the iss file.
setup.exe /a /r /f1c:\temp\setup.iss
And the you can use this iss file for uninstalling silently.
start /wait setup.exe /s /a /s /sms /f1c:\temp\setup.iss
It works fine.
