My company has many servers deployed across the world at remote locations. These servers are not connected to the internet except for mails.
In an event, we are selling off the location, we need to clear the server out to a bare. i.e. to uninstall all the softwares as they are company licensed. Since the end user is not a technical fellow, the company currently needs to fly out a IT person to the location. Is there a way to eliminate this? Like automating uninstallations of softwares or a way to "reset" the system with a ghost copy or something like that.
The best option would have been to use System Restore but alas, its not available on Windows Server 2008. The server's are RAID setup so its not easy to "format and reinstall" for a non-tech guy.
