Removing a Device From Lenovo Device Manager

Removing a Device From Lenovo Device Manager

A device should be deleted if you want to remove it from your portal, especially when ownership of the device has to be transferred outside of your company. Once deleted, the device will no longer be accessible in your portal.

It is recommended that you uninstall the Lenovo UDC Agent (Universal Device Client) from the device if you do not intend on using the device in the portal. For instructions on how to uninstall UDC, please refer the steps below for uninstall instructions.

To delete one or more devices: 
  1. Navigate to Device Management > Devices page.
  2. Select the checkbox next to the device(s) in the devices list.
  3. Click on the Delete button.
  4. Click Yes in the confirmation pop-up to delete the device or Cancel to go back to the devices list.

Removing an Intel vPro device with Intel vPro agent installed

To delete an Intel vPro device with Intel vPro agent installed: 
  1. Navigate to Device Management > Devices page. 
  2. Select the checkbox next to the Intel vPro device(s) in the devices list.
  3. Click on the Delete button.
  4. Click Yes in the confirmation pop-up to delete the device or Cancel to go back to the devices list.
When the Intel vPro device is deleted from LDM, the device will first be automatically un-provisioned from the Intel EMA server. Then the device will be un-provisioned from the UDS server before it is removed from the list of devices on LDM. Until the device is successfully removed from the Intel EMA server, the device status will show as "Decommissioning". This may take up to 1 hour after the deletion request is sent to the Intel EMA server. When the device is in the Decommissioning state, the device will be marked as Inactive and no actions can be performed on the device (such as opening the device tray etc.,)  

If the device has not been successfully un-provisioned from the Intel EMA server within 1 hour of the deletion request, the device will be automatically force deleted from UDS and LDM. Once done, it will be added to the Decommissioned Devices Report.
