Problem with Nimble plugin in VirtualCenter 6.7U3 or any other plugin. #VMWare #VirtualCenter #nimble #storage

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.
