Remove vCloud Director vCenter Extensions

I have now removed vCloud Director from my lab, while removing this I thought I would create a guide on the process on removing the vCloud Director vCenter Extensions such as vShield Manager.

To complete this you will need to navigate to the following website and login using your vSphere credentials.

https://vCenterFQDN/mob

When you have logged on you will be presented with the following screen –

ManagedObjectBrowser - Remove vCloud Director vCenter Extensions

You will now need to select ‘Content’ in the Properties section.

Now you will need to select ‘ExtensionManager’

ManagedObjectBrowserExtensionManager - Remove vCloud Director vCenter Extensions

Select ‘More…’ to expand the selection If the option is present.

As you can see I still have the vShieldManager and vCloud Director Extensions installed on my vCenter. You will now need to select ‘UnregisterExtension’

You will be presented with the following pop-up –

ManagedObjectBrowserUnregisterExtension - Remove vCloud Director vCenter Extensions

You will need to obtain the key string of the Extension you want to remove. For example you can see the key below for the vShield Manager installed in my environment.

ManagedObjectBrowserExtensionKey - Remove vCloud Director vCenter Extensions

com.vmware.vShieldManager

You will need to paste this in to the ‘UnregisterExtension’ box as you can see below –

ManagedObjectBrowserRemovevShieldManager - Remove vCloud Director vCenter Extensions

Select Invoke Method to remove the extension. As you can see above the result will be ‘Void’.

We can repeat this for the vCloud Director extension as below –

ManagedObjectBrowserRemovevCloudDirector - Remove vCloud Director vCenter Extensions

Select Invoke Method to remove the extension.

As you can see this was also successful. You can now navigate back to the Extension List screen and Refresh the page. You will now see that these extensions have been removed from the list.
