I have downloaded the BESR 8.5 uninstall batch file so that I can perform a clean uninstall of the product on a server where the product was not removed cleanly. Before using the batch file on our production Windows 2003 SP2 server, I ran the batch file on a test box. BESR 8.5 was removed successfully. But when I checked the Application Log in Event Viewer, it showed that the Altiris Patch Management Agent was also successfully removed.
The Altiris client components must remain intact on our server after the uninstall script is run. Does the BESR 8.5 batch file remove Altiris components by design?
