Example: Package files
When you deploy actions, the Tanium Server distributes packages that run commands on the target endpoints. Some package commands depend on files that are distributed with the package, while other commands depend on utilities and resources that were previously installed in known locations on the endpoints. For example, the Tanium Client uninstall utility resides in the top-level installation folder on Windows (such as C:\Program Files (x86)\Tanium\Tanium Client). You can easily develop a package that invokes the uninstall utility.
On macOS, the Tanium Client distribution does not include an uninstall utility. You can create a shell script to uninstall the Tanium Client and use a package to deploy it: see Tanium Client Management User Guide: Manage the Tanium Client on macOS.
In these example actions, the Tanium Client is uninstalled. If an action to uninstall the Tanium Client succeeds, the endpoint does not send a final success message for the action. Because the Tanium Client is removed, the endpoint has no way to communicate with the Tanium Server.
