Uninstalling the server on Windows in interactive mode

To uninstall the BigFix Inventory server on Windows, run the uninstall.bat file. Then, follow instructions in the installation wizard. The wizard does not uninstall the MS SQL Server nor the BigFix server. These components need to be removed separately.


  1. Log in to the computer where the BigFix Inventory server is installed as the same user who performed the installation.
  2. Go to the C:\Program Files\BigFix Enterprise\BFI\Uninstall directory and run the uninstall.bat file. Start the uninstallation with the Run as administrator option.
  3. Follow instructions in the uninstallation wizard. When the uninstallation finishes, click Done.


The BigFix Inventory server is uninstalled but the database, user logins, and passwords are preserved. To remove them, delete the BigFix Inventory database. You can also remove the BigFix server.

10.0.4 Starting from BigFix Inventory version 10.0.4, you can also remove the database job that manages regular database index rebuilding. The job is named as "<BFI_database_name> Full Database Index Reorganization". For more information, refer to Delete One or More Jobs.
