Mass uninstalling a non-communicating initial client

Example:

I have 100+ computers that have a non-communicating initial client and a default password secret.
I would like to do a bulk uninstallation using the IBM Tivoli script

Does anyone know how?
Primarily how to write a password entry secret
Thank you

Re: Mass uninstalling a non-communicating initial client

Add UNINST_PASSWORD=secret to the end of command line, like this:

msiexec /x EPS.msi UNINST_PASSWORD=secret

or

msiexec /x <{ProductCode of the initial client}> /qn UNINST_PASSWORD=secret

ProductCode can be found in EPS.msi->Properties->Details->Comments

ProductCode

For the above product the command line should be:

msiexec /x {0CAD9ED1-D033-4A5C-BF32-9BCD32FB4731} /qn UNINST_PASSWORD=secret

 

If password contains spaces or special characters it must be taken in quotes.

thanks, we finally used it:

if {(exists key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{D23F2F0E-8675-44F5-BBE9-58C29CF701C0}}" of (registry;x64 registry))}
waithidden MsiExec.exe /x {"{D23F2F0E-8675-44F5-BBE9-58C29CF701C0}}"} /qn UNINST_PASSWORD="secret"
endif

(in Tivoli )
