Uninstall the Traps Agent for Linux

From the ESM Console you can uninstall the Traps agent on a Linux server (see Uninstall the Traps Agent in the Traps Endpoint Security Manager Administrator’s Guide). You can also uninstall the agent directly on the server. Successfully uninstalling the Traps program effectively removes the Traps agent from the server. On Linux servers, you can use the uninstall.sh script found in the /opt/traps/scripts directory to uninstall Traps. After you uninstall the agent, your server will no longer be protected your company’s security policies.
  1. On the Linux server, run the uninstall.sh script and confirm you want to uninstall the Traps.
    By default, the script removes all logs, keys, and other files related to the Traps agent. If you want to preserve the logs, run the uninstall script in light mode using the -l option.
    To use the uninstall script, you must run it from the default location in the scripts directory.
