Uninstalling the server on Windows in silent mode

To uninstall the BigFix Inventory server on Windows, edit parameters in the uninstall_response.txt file, and run the uninstallation command. The command 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 directory with the uninstallation response file, open the uninstall_response.txt file, and edit the uninstallation parameters. By default, the directory is C:\Program Files\BigFix Enterprise\BFI\Uninstall.
  3. Start the command line and run the following command.
    uninstall.bat -f C:\Program Files\BigFix Enterprise\BFI\Uninstall\uninstall_response.txt -i silent 


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.
