How to completely remove and start from scratch regardning Nimble Plugin in Vcenter.
W had the plugin that was in running mode
1 – Unregister the array from VC in Nimble
2- Clean the VC cache
SSH to vcenter server
service-control --stop vsphere-client service-control --stop vsphere-ui cd /etc/vmware/vsphere-client/vc-packages/vsphere-client-serenity rm -rf com.nimblestorage.* cd /etc/vmware/vsphere-ui/vc-packages/vsphere-client-serenity rm -rf com.nimblestorage.* Remove the user interface extensions: service-control --start vsphere-client service-control --start vsphere-ui
Or restart vcenter
Additional steps that we need to execute now.
Need to contact support for this.
3 – On the array rename the directory “/scratch/vcenterplugin” to “/scratch/vcenterplugin_old”. only after this it will create the “/scratch/vcenterplugin” folder again on the array and it updates the plugin-package.xml correctly
4- Register the array to the VC.
5 – Login to VC it will show new plugin is available,
6 – Logout of VC and login again
If you have a plugin that not supposed to be there for example flex plugin for nimble you can remove this plugin thru vcenter mob.
