Uninstalling the disconnected scanner from IBM i systems

If you no longer need the disconnected scanner to scan the IBM i system, you can uninstall it from any endpoint.


  1. Open the directory where the disconnected scanner is installed.
  2. Create a backup of the endpoint_id.txt file that is located in the config directory. This file will be required if you want to install the disconnected scanner on the same computer in the future.
  3. To uninstall the scanner, run the following script. The script uninstalls the scanner and cancels the scan schedule. It does not remove scanner files.
    1. uninstall.sh
    2. uninstall.bat
  4. Remove the directory where the disconnected scanner was installed.


The scanner is successfully uninstalled, and the data is no longer collected. Software and capacity scans no longer run.
