Agent Third-Party Deployment: Uninstalling FlexNet inventory agent from UNIX

FlexNet Manager Suite 2022 R1 (On-Premises)
If you need to manually uninstall FlexNet inventory agent from a managed device, use the following command lines.
Note: Uninstallation leaves behind the folder /var/opt/managesoft since it may contain a package cache that a future re-install of the FlexNet inventory agent can use.
Platform Uninstallation command line


For removal from the standard installation path, use:
installp -u managesoft
If you have used a custom installation path, known as a User Specified Installation Location (USIL), you must include the same USIL so that FlexNet inventory agent is removed from the correct object repository (and keep the options in this order):
installp -R path -u managesoft
