Proper Way To Uninstall SCCM Agent from Clients?

Hello Experts,

I have a client that is moving to use a new RMM product. They had been using SCCM in their environment. Is there a clean way to uninstall or remove a system from SCCM? I have used the standard command lines on a system but seems to leave quite a bit of remnants. Wasn't sure if there was a cleaner way to uninstall from the server. This will allow the RMM to begin managing for updates. Thanks for the help.

That's what we are running. It will show the config manager still there in a way with a greyed out icon but does nothing. We still see the device in SCCM but it shows at not connected so I know it works but was worried we might be missing something since it wouldn't fully disappear from the SCCM Manager or show without an agent icon as other systems do that have never had the agent installed.

You're talking about the console. When a client becomes an ex-client (the agent is removed), the object you see in the console will grey out to show it is not active. At this point you know it's safe to delete the object from the console.

How? Select it and press delete. There's no link to the object you see in the console to you uninstalling the client from any machine.
