Remove systems from patch management

If you want to remove a system from Patchdeck you should first stop or uninstall the agent and then remove the system in the console.

Step 1: Uninstall the agent

Windows

  1. Open a Powershell console as an administrator
  2. Change into the directory where the agent is installed (e.g. C:\Program Files\PatchdeckWindowsAgent)
  3. Run the command: .\PatchdeckWindowsAgent -uninstall

Linux

  1. Delete the cronjob you configured for the agent. On most Linux distributions you can use the command crontab -e for that.
  2. Remove the directory where the agent is installed. Example: sudo rm -r /opt/patchdeck-agent

Step 2: Remove the device from the console

  1. Go to https://patchdeck.com/patch_management
  2. Click the "Delete" button for the system you want to remove and confirm on the next page
  3. Thats it. The system will no longer be managed via your Patchdeck console. To re-enroll the system just follow the instruction at https://docs.patchdeck.com/article/10-add-system-to-patch-management
