Removing Unified Manager


You can uninstall Unified Manager by removing the virtual machine (VM) on which the Unified Manager software is installed.

Before you begin

  • You should have credentials for accessing VMware vCenter Server and vSphere Web Client.

  • Any active connection of the Unified Manager server to a Workflow Automation server should be closed.

  • All clusters (data sources) should be removed from the Unified Manager server before you remove 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 remove, 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 remove, and click Delete from Disk.
