Have you ever found the need to manually uninstall the DPM agent from a server?
Perhaps one of the following:
“Error: DPM was unable to remove the protected computer”
“Uninstall Protection agent from <server> failed”
“There is failure while removing production server”
“DPM was unable to remove the protected computer <server>”
“Error 347: An error occurred when the agent operation attempted to create the DPM Agent Coordinator.”
Here’s How You Force the Removal of a DPM Agent
- Launch the DPM Management Shell on the DPM Server
- Type the name of the remove script – remove-productionserver.ps1
- Enter the name of the DPM server
- Enter the FQDN of the machine to remove
NOTE: The first attempt to remove failed, this was due to FQDN.
