Upgrade XDR Agent

L3 Networker

Hi,

 

We are trying to uninstall and install XDR on a Windows server but getting a prompt during uninstallation that reboot is required.

 

Will reboot be necessary after uninstallation?

 

Regards,

Shahwaz

Hi @Shahwaz_Md ,

 

We do not force a reboot. But if this message is shown that means that a reboot is highly recommended because of some dependent services not being able to remove just in the uninstall. Also, you would need a reboot after reinstall anyways to allow all protection modes to work as we all know there are many modules which do not work unless the endpoint is restarted after install. 

 

Hope this helps.
