Removing Unified Manager


You can uninstall Unified Manager by destroying the virtual appliance on which the Unified Manager software is installed.

Before you begin

  • You must have credentials for accessing VMware vCenter Server and vSphere Web Client (for vSphere version 6.5 or 6.7) or vSphere Client (for vSphere version 6.0).

  • The Unified Manager server must not have an active connection to a Workflow Automation server.

    If there is an active connection, you must delete the connection by using the Administration menu.

  • All clusters (data sources) must be removed from the Unified Manager server before you delete the virtual machine (VM).


  1. Use the Unified Managermaintenance console to verify that the Unified Manager server does not have an active connection to an external data provider.

  2. In the vSphere Client, click Home > Inventory > VMs and Templates.

  3. Select the VM that you want to destroy, and click the Summary tab.

  4. If the VM is running, click Power > Shut Down Guest.

  5. Right-click the VM that you want to destroy, and click Delete from Disk.
