Uninstall a Gateway or Agent

You can use the Add/Remove Programs feature of Windows to uninstall the on-premise software for System Center Advisor. You can also use the Repair option in Add/Remove Programs.

Be aware of the following prior to uninstalling the on-premise software:

  • If you cancel the Advisor setup during uninstallation or repair, you will need to manually restart the Health Service.

    To restart the Health Service, open the Services console (services.msc), right-click System Center Management, and then click Restart.

  • Do not manually remove the Health Service unless you also plan to remove Advisor. Advisor software is dependent on this System Center Operations Manager software.

  • If you are uninstalling a beta version of the gateway or agent, you need to use the uninstall.exe program located in the directory where you installed the on-premise software. See To uninstall a beta gateway or agent for more information.
