SymantecRemovalTool.command 8.0.3 Help

Hey Jamf Nation!

We are trying to remove SEP 14.x from all our Macs.

We deploy the .command file to /private/var then have "File and Processes" start the shell script file. You'd think this would work fine since "File and Processes" is a root execution, but the end user still gets prompted to enter a username and password dialog.

Anyone got a way around this?

We are using the script from:

We ended up being able to remove SEP without admin prompts using this script:
