Removing an existing installation of Client Security

Published: December 16, 2009

Applies To: Forefront Client Security

Before you remove Client Security from the servers, it is recommended that you prepare your client computers for removing Client Security by undeploying the policies to those computers.

Removing Client Security from client computers

To remove Client Security from the client computers using the standard method, you should undeploy the policy for those computers. After the policy is undeployed, Client Security is no longer automatically updated on the client computer.

To remove Client Security from the client computer by undeploying a policy
  1. In the Client Security console, click the Policy Management tab, and then click the policy you want to undeploy.

  2. Click Undeploy. A confirmation message appears.

  3. Click Undeploy. Client Security undeploys the policy.

  4. If you deployed the policy to an OU and you want the policy to take effect immediately, you can run the gpupdate /force command on each client computer in the OU or restart each client computer. Otherwise, the policy is applied to client computers when the standard Group Policy refresh occurs.

  5. If you deployed the policy to a security group and you want the policy to take effect immediately, you can restart each client computer in the security group. The command gpupdate /force does not update policies for client computers in security groups. Otherwise, the policy is applied to client computers when the standard Group Policy refresh occurs.

  6. If you used registry file deployment for the policy, you must run fcslocalpolicytool.exe on each client computer that you distributed the policy to by using a registry file. At the command prompt, type the following:

    fcslocalpolicytool.exe /d

    For automated deployments, you can use the /f option to suppress the confirmation message.

After undeploying the policies, you can remove Client Security from the client computers by doing the following.

To manually remove Client Security from the client computer
  1. On the client computer, make sure that the Client Security agent is closed.
