To remove the View Desktops plug-in from the vSphere Web Client, you must unregister the plug-in on each View Connection Server instance in a replicated group. Next, you remove the vCenter Lookup Service configuration.

In a replicated group of View Connection Server instances, you cannot unregister the instance on which you first registered the View Desktops plug-in until all other instances are unregistered.

If you intend to perform maintenance operations on the View Connection Server instances in a replicated group, you can use the -f option with the regtool.cmd removeLookUpService command to unregister all the View Connection Server instances and remove the vCenter Lookup Service configuration in one step.

If you intend to bring down a View Connection Server instance for scheduled maintenance, you must unregister the instance from the vCenter Lookup Service before you start the maintenance procedure.

1

On the View Connection Server computer, navigate to the regtool.cmd utility, located in the following directory:

install_directory\VMware\VMware View\Server\TechPreview\ViewAdminPlugin

2

Unregister View Desktops plug-in.

For example: regtool.cmd unregister -u view-admin@domain

view-admin@domain is the username and domain of a user with the View Administrators role.

3

At the prompt, type the View Administrators user password.

A return code of 0 indicates that the configuration was successful.

4

Repeat the preceding steps to unregister the plug-in on all View Connection Server instances in a replicated group.

After all other instances are unregistered, unregister the plug-in on the instance on which you first performed the registration.

5

Remove the vCenter Lookup Service configuration from View Connection Server.

For example: regtool.cmd removeLookUpService -u view-admin@domain

You can run this command on any View Connection Server instance in a replicated group. The command fails if the View Desktops plug-in is still registered on any View Connection Server instance.

6

At the prompt, type the View Administrators user password.

A return code of 0 indicates that the configuration was successful.
