Procedure to cleanly remove an engine appliance that is no longer needed.
If you decide you no longer need a specific engine appliance in your environment and would like it completely removed, use the following steps to ensure it is removed cleanly and no longer included in any UVB reporting:
- On the Configure page, remove any data stores associated with the appliance.
- Next, use the hypervisor client and power down the appliance virtual machine.
- Use the hypervisor client again to remove the appliance VM and any associated disks.
- In the UVB interface, run an Inventory Sync.
