You can disable an Orchestrator plug-in from the Plug-ins tab, but this does not remove the plug-in file from the file system. To remove the plug-in file, you must log in to the machine on which the Orchestrator server is installed and remove the plug-in file manually.

1

Log in as an administrator to the machine on which the Orchestrator server is installed.

2

Navigate to the Orchestrator installation folder.

Option

Action

If you installed Orchestrator with the vCenter Server installer

Go to install_directory\VMware\Infrastructure\Orchestrator\app-server\server\vmo\plugins.

If you installed the standalone version of Orchestrator

Go to install_directory\VMware\Orchestrator\app-server\server\vmo\plugins.

3

Delete the .dar archive that contains the plug-in to remove.

4

Restart the vCenter Orchestrator Configuration service.

The plug-in is removed from the Orchestrator configuration interface.

5

Log in to the Orchestrator client.

6

Click the Packages view.

7

Right-click the package to delete, and select Delete element with content.

Note

Orchestrator elements that are locked in the read-only state, for example workflows in the standard library, are not deleted.

You removed all custom workflows and actions, policies, Web views, configurations, settings, and resources that the plug-in contains.
