We have vm's that by accident got the file system agent, when i try to unistall it from the commcell it automatically selects sql agent.

 is there a way to uninstall the file system agent without deleting the sql agent?

Hello @arik 

The file system agent is a core requirement for the SQL agent to work but should not consume a license unless configured. 

In my lab i went through the steps of creating the agent and then removing the agent. At what step do you get errors: 

1- Created file system agent


2- Released license


3- Delete Agent

Thank you for your answer.

I wanted to mass remove the file system agent by adding all the clients to a client group and then uninstall the agent, in the uninstallation page if you check the file system agent its automatically checks the sql agent and you cannot uncheck it.

Hello @arik 

The file system agent is installed with the SQL agent and you cannot uninstall it.
You can deconfig the agent as i showed in my above steps but it is a requirement for the SQL agent to work.
