Script for SEP client install/uninstall

Hi Experts,
Could you please advise for any script that might help to Uninstall and then Install SEP client, I am intended to run the script to deploy SEP clients for 300 servers.

Via script intend to do uninstall existing version>install new version>reboot.

Found something in the below link

http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=TECH102470

Actually I tried with remote push and it works for most of the servers but for nearly 300 servers it is not working, can you please advise.

It has been awhile since I used Symantec but when I had you could use a central admin system to centrally install and uninstall software. You don't have a central admin system with SEP? Otherwise this would be  good place to start using psexec to run a batch fie on remote systems http://community.spiceworks.com/how_to/show/1955-uninstall-symantec-endpoint-protection-remotely

Need to note the requirement for such operations too - below is one extract and more in article for checks
Steps to prepare computers to install Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1.x client
http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=tech163112

To install the client software, you need administrative rights to the computer or to the Windows domain. If you do not want to provide users with administrative rights to their computers, use Remote Push to remotely install the client software. Remote Push requires you to have local administrative rights to the computers.

Specifically check out this silent operation still using the msi (and the "Uninstall.cmd" and "install.cmd")

the use of "psexec " (as an example and id will varied) e.g. psexec \\computer_name MsiExec.exe /norestart /q/x{BA4B71D1-898E-4306-AE87-8BA7A596F0ED} REMOVE=ALL
