Hello

I'm not a SCOM specialist, but I have to remove scom management group on many servers but from the SCOM console, then uninstall all clients on all server and uninstall it, in order to dismiss the scom configuration. I think it's possible but I don't know how to do this. I found this following article:

https://argonsys.com/microsoft-cloud/library/scom-task-to-add-or-remove-management-groups-on-agents/

But I don't know how create the administration pack including the tasks. Does somebody can help me please.

    If the number is reasonable you could just login and remove the unwanted connection manually.

    If the agents have multiple connections (dual-homed), running the remote SCOM uninstall will only remove the connection settings (not the agent). As long as there is one lingering connection. You can easily test this on a few target systems to confirm.

    I believe it may also be possible to run the setup command with switches to remove a connection from the command-line.

    You might also look at helper or admin MPs from the community that might have tools around connection cleanup. Checkout Cookdown.
