Ready To Uninstall Jamf?

Starting clean before you install anything is the best way to move to another Remote Apple Mac management solution. We often get requests to help with the migration so we’ve provided these instructions for anyone who wants to move from Jamf to Addigy. The steps are simple and use uninstall commands available within the Jamf framework.

To uninstall Jamf there are two scenarios you can follow:

Scenario 1: Use Addigy to uninstall Jamf

One of the primary advantages to this scenario is that you can uninstall Jamf from multiple Macs at once, including any offline devices the minute they come online.

  1. Install Addigy on your Macs using Jamf’s deployment process (using a simple curl command available in your trial account). Your Macs will then appear in the Addigy web app.
  2. In Addigy, run the following script on any group of Macs:For Jamf versions 9.8 or higher: /usr/local/bin/jamf removeFramework
  3. For Jamf versions 9.7.3 or lower: /usr/sbin/jamf removeFramework

Bonus: As an added benefit, any device not currently online will run the command as soon as it connects to the web.

Scenario 2: Uninstall Jamf directly

This is a perfectly good option for a single device.

  1. Open a terminal session on the device.
  2. Run the following scripts (same as scenario 1): For Jamf versions 9.8 or higher: /usr/local/bin/jamf removeFrameworkFor Jamf versions 9.7.3 or lower: /usr/sbin/jamf removeFramework
