How to uninstall ArcGIS 10.2.1

08/03/2016 1683 views
Hi Everyone:
I've got about 20 installations of ArcGIS 10.2.1 out in the field that I'd like to get uninstalled in preparation for an upgrade.  None of these installs were done using the Kace, but I'd really like to do them remotely.
I tried using the string, "msiexec.exe /uninstall "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\ArcGIS\Support\ESRI.exe" /qn" under "Managed installations" but, obviously, that's not going to work.
Can anyone give me some pointers on how to get this to work?
Many thanks!
Bryan

Grab the MSI GUIDS of the components of ArcGIS that are out there an run a targeted uninstall:

MSIEXEC /X {MSI PACKAGE GUID} /qn

It won't just be the ESRI products, there are multiple pre-reqs to consider.
If your new version uses the same versions as the old one, then great, otherwise you'll need to pull them off to provide a 'clean' installation of your new install of ArcGIS.

Someone with KACE knowledge may be able to help you with the specifics of doing this in KACE. My advice is from experience of ArcGIS a few years ago.
