Uninstalling Device Managers from within Barracuda RMM

Initiating the Device Manager uninstall from the Barracuda RMM UI causes the application itself to be uninstalled but does leave behind objects in the file system and Windows registry. See uninstalling locally below for more details on these artifacts.

  • Navigate to Site Management
  • Click on Sites
  • Select the Site where the Device Manager is installed
  • From the top, choose Device Managers 
  • Click the Check Box beside the Device Manager you wish to uninstall
  • Expand More Actions
  • Select Uninstall Device Managers
  • Leave the radial button on Uninstall Device Managers and Delete Devices

Barracuda RMM Support Note

If the device you are removing the Device Manager from is in the scan range of an Onsite Manager, please bear in mind that it might be scanned and show up in the Device List as managed by the Onsite Manager. If this occurs after you have installed the Device Manager, delete the Onsite Manager-managed device from your device list, and it should appear as expected.

Method 2: Uninstall a Device Manager via Programs and Features
