Hi all,

Do anyone of you have a script to remove Solarwinds products? In our case, that should be the N-able Windows agent and Solarwinds MSP (SolarWinds MSP Cache Service, SolarWinds MSP Patch Management Engine, SolarWinds MSP RPC Server). Or have any experience removing it using automation?

Thanks in advance!

Maybe this is helpful.. I ran this script in Pulseway to remove Solarwinds N-Central RMM a while back.

It won't uninstall all the software solutions you mention, but it might put you one step closer if you replace some of the code with updated uninstall strings etc.

 

$installstate = Get-Item -path 'HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{940B905A-92ED-4646-B38B-321F80873C37}' -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue

if ($installstate -eq $null)
{
    Write-Host 'N-Central Uninstall Registry, was not found and might already be removed.'
    exit
}
else
{
    Write-Host 'Uninstalling Ncentral RMM Agent'
    Start-Process MsiExec.exe '/X{940B905A-92ED-4646-B38B-321F80873C37} /qn'

    Start-Sleep -s 30

    $program = 'Windows Agent'
    $program2 = 'Ncentral RMM Agent'

    Write-Host 'Verifying uninstallation...'
        $32bit = ((Get-ChildItem "HKLM:\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall") |
            Where-Object { $_.GetValue( "DisplayName" ) -like "*$program*" } ).Length -gt 0;

        $64bit = ((Get-ChildItem "HKLM:\Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall") |
         Where-Object { $_.GetValue( "DisplayName" ) -like "*$program*" } ).Length -gt 0;


        if ($32bit -eq $False -and $64bit -eq $False)
     {
         Write-Host "$program2 were uninstalled successfully."
     }
    
     Write-Host 'Deleting N-Central registry keys...'

    $Reg1 = Test-Path 'HKLM:\SOFTWARE\N-able Technologies'
    if ($Reg1 -eq $True)
    {
    Remove-Item 'HKLM:\SOFTWARE\N-able Technologies' -Recurse
    $Reg1v = Test-Path 'HKLM:\SOFTWARE\N-able Technologies'
    Write-Host 'Registry key 1 still present?' $Reg1v
    }
    else
    {
    Write-Host 'Registry key 1 did not exist and will be ignored.'
    }

    $Reg2 = Test-Path 'HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\N-able Technologies Inc. Windows Agent'
    if ($Reg2 -eq $True)
    {
    Remove-Item 'HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\N-able Technologies Inc. Windows Agent' -Recurse
    $Reg2v = Test-Path 'HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\N-able Technologies Inc. Windows Agent'
    Write-Host 'Registry key 2 still present?' $Reg2v
    }
    else
    {
    Write-Host 'Registry key 2 did not exist and will be ignored.'
    }

    $Reg3 = Test-Path 'HKLM:\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\N-able Technologies Windows Agent'
    if ($Reg3 -eq $True)
    {
    Remove-Item 'HKLM:\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\N-able Technologies Windows Agent' -Recurse
    $Reg3v = Test-Path 'HKLM:\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\N-able Technologies Windows Agent'
    Write-Host 'Registry key 3 still present?' $Reg3v
    }
    else
    {
    Write-Host 'Registry key 3 did not exist and will be ignored.'
    }

    $Reg4 = Test-Path 'HKLM:\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\N-able Technologies Windows Agent Maintenance'
    if ($Reg4 -eq $True)
    {
    Remove-Item 'HKLM:\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\N-able Technologies Windows Agent Maintenance' -Recurse
    $Reg4v = Test-Path 'HKLM:\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\N-able Technologies Windows Agent Maintenance'
    Write-Host 'Registry key 4 still present?' $Reg4v
    }
    else
    {
    Write-Host 'Registry key 4 did not exist and will be ignored.'
    }

}
start-sleep s 30
Remove-Item "C:\Program Files (x86)\N-able Technologies" -recurse

$installstate2 = Get-Item -path 'HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{940B905A-92ED-4646-B38B-321F80873C37}' -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue

if ($installstate2 -eq $null)
{
    Write-Host "$program2 was successfully uninstalled."
    exit
}

I did this for NINJA, try playing with the search key where the -match "your program"  but be carefull

 

$UninstallString = (Get-ItemProperty HKLM:\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\NinjaRMMAgent*).UninstallString

sleep -seconds 2

if (!$UninstallString) { exit }

sleep -seconds 2

$path = $UninstallString -replace "uninstall.exe", ""

sleep -seconds 5

cd $path

sleep -seconds 5

Start-Process -FilePath .\uninstall.exe -ArgumentList "--mode","unattended"

sleep -seconds 40

$Uninstall2 = Get-ChildItem -Path HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall, HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall | Get-ItemProperty | Where-Object {$_.DisplayName -match "NinjaRMMAgent" } | Select-Object -Property UninstallString | foreach { $_.UninstallString }

sleep -seconds 220

$Uninstall3 = $Uninstall2 -Replace "MsiExec.exe " , ""

sleep -seconds 5

Start-Process -FilePath MSIExec.exe -ArgumentList $Uninstall3,"/quiet","/passive"
