This article explains how to uninstall the SolarWinds agent when the normal uninstallation procedure fails.


All NPM versions


To remove agents from Windows devices, go to the Control Panel's Program and Features > Uninstall option to remove the SolarWinds agent. Another way to remove an agent is to change the polling method -- an option to remove the existing agent will appear.

To remove agents from Linux devices, see Remove an agent from a Linux-based device.

To reinstall agents, deploy them via the Manage Agents page in the Orion Web Console, or manually download and install agent.
