Removing MBAM Server Features or Software

These instructions explain how to remove software and features from Microsoft BitLocker Administration and Monitoring (MBAM). If you remove MBAM Server features, only the configured features are removed from the server, not the MBAM Server software. If you remove the MBAM Server software, the software and any MBAM Server features that you configured on that server are removed.

Note
To prevent the accidental removal of data, MBAM provides no mechanism for removing the databases; you must do that manually.
