My computer crashed while I was installing an elastic agent. So I rebooted and tried again, but the
elastic-agent.exe install ...etc... gave an error say it is unabel to, and that i need to uninstall it first. So then I ran this command:
PS C:\Program Files\Elastic\Agent> .\elastic-agent.exe uninstall
Elastic Agent will be uninstalled from your system at C:\Program Files\Elastic\Agent. Do you want to continue? [Y/n]:Y
I've waited several hours and there's no response from the command. I rebooted my computer and tried the uninstall command again . Again it just stays stuck on that screen. I waited a few more hours but still no response.
How do I uninstall an Elastic Agent?
Because Elastic Agent is installed as an auto-starting service, it will restart automatically if the system is rebooted. So, what is the status of your agent?
elastic-agent status logs:
If any Elastic Agent-related processes are still running, stop them and then try running the following commands:
copy "c:\Program Files\Elastic\Endpoint\elastic-endpoint.exe" elastic-endpoint.exe
Hope this helps but I would also check this link: troubleshoot common problems.
