  • 1.  Uninstall Symantec Endpoint Protection v14.x with Bypass tampering protection

    Posted Nov 29, 2021 10:36 AM
    Hi,

    Our clients already decommissioned SEP since 2019 and required us to uninstall remaining SEP products on all of their endpoints, roughly around 30,000 units. I would like to request a script that enable us to bypass the tampering protection as the current script obtain from Symantec only useful for SEP without tampering protection.

    Regards.

    Hi,
    Here are our command line options for uninstalling. We do not provide scripts to uninstall.

    Hello John,

    you provided a link to command line options for uninstalling, but if there is a password protection that needs to be removed first in console.

    Is there any solution how to automate uninstall with password protected SEP without use of console?
    I need to reinstall SEP machines which have broken communication with console.

    CleanWipe do the job, but I'm unable to run it silently/without user interaction.

    Good Day Hussain,

    Yes we already tried the method but quite hassled to us since there were users in remote regions/sites hence using script is preferred method.

    So you created a SEP package with clean-wipe option?
    (Two reboots required, one enforced to immediately reinstall SEP.)

    Did you also tried to use a Communication update package, which includes:

    • SylinkDrop.exe (it is also included within the installed SEP package)
    • SylinkDropCommand.ini (with hashed password for the group the client belong to)
    • Sylink.xml
    You can deploy it over GPO, SCCM, every third party software deployment tool or remote Push from SEPM console.
