Warning

To remove only one of the agents from a machine hosting several agents, do not remove the MySQL Enterprise Monitor Agent entry from the Add or Remove Programs menu. To remove a single agent, see Removing a Single Agent.

Removing MySQL Enterprise Monitor Agent in this way also removes the agent service. If you are running additional agents on the same server, you must remove them agents manually. See Removing a Single MySQL Enterprise Monitor Agent for instructions on uninstalling individual agents.

Removing a Single MySQL Enterprise Monitor Agent

To remove only one of the agents from a machine that is running several agents, do not remove the MySQL Enterprise Monitor Agent entry from the Add or Remove Programs menu. To remove a single agent, do the following:

  1. Stop the agent.

    You must stop the agent before attempting to remove it; for instructions on stopping an agent see, Section 5.5.1, “Starting/Stopping the Agent on Windows”.

  2. Confirm the location of the log files.

    To confirm the location of the agent log files, check the ini file.

  3. Remove the agent as a service. This can only be done from the command line.

    Remove MySQL Enterprise Monitor Agent as a Windows service with the following command:

    shell> sc delete AgentName
    Note

    To find the AgentName, from the Services pane of the Microsoft Management Console, open the Properties page for the MySQL Enterprise Monitor Agent service. The Service name field on the General tab contains the required value.

    To confirm the agent has been removed, check the Services pane of the Microsoft Management Console.

  4. Remove or archive any log or configuration files associated with the agent.
