9.8 Unregistering a Device

A device is automatically unregistered when the ZENworks Agent is uninstalled. You can manually unregister a device if necessary.

Unregistering a device by using zac

Unregistration of a device can be done at the device using ZENworks Agent command line utility (zac):

  1. At the device, open a command prompt.

  2. Enter the following command:

    zac unr [-f] [-u ZENworks Administrator username -p ZENworks Administrator password]

    For example:

    zac unr -u zadmin -p novell

    The -f, -u, and -p parameters are optional. If you do not use the -u and -p parameters, you are prompted to enter a username and password. The -f parameter ignores the ZENworks database and forces the device to be unregistered locally; this option is only necessary if the device object has already been deleted from the ZENworks database or if the device cannot connect to the database.

Unregistering a device by using the Unregister Device action

To manually unregister a device, do the following:

  1. Log in to ZENworks Control Center.

  2. Click Devices > Managed.

  3. Select either Servers or Workstations as the type of the device, then select the devices you want to unregister from the Management zone.

  4. Click Action > Unregister Device.
