Syntax

Uninstall-AIPScanner []

Description

The Uninstall-AIPScanner cmdlet uninstalls the Windows Server service, Azure Information Protection Scanner. This command does not remove the SQL Server database that was created by running the Install-AIPScanner cmdlet when the Azure Information Protection scanner was installed. If this database is no longer required, you must manually remove it:

  • For the Azure Information Protection client (classic), the default database name for the scanner is AIPScanner_<computer_name> but when you specify a profile name, the database name for the scanner changes to AIPScanner_<profile>.

  • For the Azure Information Protection unified labeling client, the database name for the scanner is AIPScannerUL_<profile_name>.

This command also does not remove the scanner reports located in %localappdata%\Microsoft\MSIP\Scanner\Reports.

To run this command, you must have local Administrator rights for the Windows Server computer and you must restart the computer after running the command to complete the removal process.
