Anyone have a script to remove all the HP/Compaq agents after conversion?

Jump to solution

Hi,

With both old school P2V and the new converter tool, we have to uninstall about 10 HP agents/tools from "Add/Remove Programs", manually uninstall the HP Network Configuration Utility, and delete two registry keys that "Add/Remove Programs" does not remove after the conversion is completed.

Does anyone have any sweet scripts or tools to do all this automatically?

Thanks

Look in the registry...

Look in HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\(HP Software Name)

You'll probably see a "QuietUninstallString" value in some of them.

An example would be: "C:\Program Files\Compaq\hpadu\hpuninst.exe /s" for the HP Array Diagnostic Utility.

Copy all of these to a .bat file, and then execute the .bat. You may run into some dependencies, but when you figure those out, you'll be good to go.

There is also a bunch of old hardware that does not get cleaned up. If you do the "set devmgr=show_nonpresent_devices=1" go into device manager and select "show hidden devices" you'll see lots of old HP hardware drivers in there. It would be nice to automate that whole cleanup also.

Thanks for the information in this topic. I have the same issues here. This will defiantly short my overall prep time for a converted server!

OK - I think I have something somewhat useful working - need to tweak it a bit.

The one think I can't figure out how to remove is the "HP Network Configuration Utility". There is no "Add/Remove Programs" for it that I can find and it has to be removed by right-clicking on a NIC, selecting properties, clicking on it in the list, and then clicking the "Uninstall" button.

Anyone have any ideas how to automate removing that?

I think that you can '86 this registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Network\{4D36E975-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\{FD0FF0D6-4876-4894-9274-258564E35C07}

But I'm not 100% sure...

I guess this can be a work in progress. As people find new, better ways to do this, feel free to update and post back for others to use. This is just my first shot at it, so I am sure there is a LOT that can be done to make it better.

Actually, change this:

MsiExec.exe /I\{A4D04B1A-DCF1-4C8C-8FFE-07D145812742}

to be this:

MsiExec.exe /X\{A4D04B1A-DCF1-4C8C-8FFE-07D145812742}

I'm working on a new conversion today. I'll get the batch file with your updates a try.

I'll post back here on how things turn out.

Great! I have not tried out Jase's step for removing the HP Network Configuration tool yet. So you may want to try that out as well.

Looks like SNETCFG might be a solution to removing the HP Network Conifiguration tool...I just can't seem to find the INF for it. Heres an example of how they remove the MS Netware client:

I haven't used snetcfg, but netcfg should acomplish your goal.

NETCFG.EXE -v -u cq_cpqteam

NETCFG.EXE -v -u cpq_trmibdrv

Cool. Except, NETCFG is MIA. Can't seem to locate a copy of it. I think its part of WinPE - but not certain. So that's when I found a copy of snetcfg floating around available for dl on the net.

OK - I got SNETCFG working (thanks to the previous post; the same command line worked for SNETCFG as it did for NETCFG):

snetcfg -v -u cq_cpqteam

snetcfg can be downloaded at http://www.jsifaq.com/docs/files/76011/snetcfg.zip

I will be posting an updated BAT file shortly.

Thanks all so far for the awesome feedback and help. This is working out quite nicely so far.
