Stop Managing a Computer

Updated: March 10, 2009

You can configure System Center Essentials to stop managing a computer. For example, you may need to remove a client computer or a server from the Windows EBS domain, and you no longer need to monitor the computer in Windows EBS. When you configure System Center Essentials to stop managing a computer, the agent is uninstalled from that computer, the computer is removed from all the computer groups to which it belonged, and it is no longer displayed in the System Center Essentials console or the Windows EBS Administration Console.

noteNote
If you have already removed a computer from the domain, you can still use this procedure to configure System Center Essentials to stop managing the computer.

For more information about System Center Essentials management agents, see System Center Essentials Help: On the Management Server, in the System Center Essentials console, press F1.
