XML tag

Description

Default value

<allow_admin_uninstall_when_locked>

This setting allows the FortiClient endpoint administrator to uninstall FortiClient using the msiexec command line without needing to use the configured EMS disconnection password. This feature is especially useful if you are using a mobile device management solution to deploy FortiClient. Because FortiClient endpoint users have no administrative privileges, so there is no risk that an endpoint user could intentionally or accidentally uninstall FortiClient.

For this element to take effect, <system><ui><password> must be configured. See UI settings.
