The command above will Uninstall Meraki Systems Manager using the same method as ‘Add/Remove Programs’ on the local computer.

The ‘/qn‘ parameter specifies a Silent Uninstall and the ‘/x’ parameter specifies to Uninstall. The Product ID is within the curly brackets.

As a bonus, you can use System Manager’s Remote Command feature to uninstall itself! Just run the command above, wait a few minutes and the client will show offline. Once offline you can remove it from your Meraki Dashboard.
