When using 3rd party management products for vCenter Server, these plug-ins appear in the Available Plug-ins list. Some of these products may not have an uninstaller to remove the entry under Available Plug-ins.
This article provides the steps to remove the unwanted plug-ins from the Available Plug-ins list.


To remove the unwanted plug-ins from the Available Plug-ins list:

  1. In a web browser, navigate to http://<vcenter server name or IP>/mob.

    Where <vcenter server name or IP> is the name of your vCenter Server or its IP address.

  2. Click Content.
  3. Click ExtensionManager.
  4. Select and copy the name of the plug-in you want to remove from the list of values under Properties.
  5. Click UnregisterExtension. A new window appears.
  6. Paste the name of the plug-in and click Invoke Method. This removes the plug-in.
  7. Close the window.
  8. Refresh the Managed Object Type:ManagedObjectReference:ExtensionManager window to verify if the plug-in is removed successfully.
