Uninstall Security Server

You can uninstall Security Server the same way it was installed, either from Control Center or from the menu-based interface of the GravityZone virtual appliance.

To uninstall Security Server in Control Center:

  1. Go to the Network page.

  2. Choose Virtual Machines from the views selector.

  3. Select the datacenter or folder containing the host on which the Security Server is installed. The endpoints are displayed in the right-side pane.

  4. Select the check box corresponding to the host on which the Security Server is installed.

  5. In the Tasks menu, select Uninstall Security Server.

  6. Enter the vShield credentials (if applicable) and click Yes to create the task.

You can view and manage the task in Network > Tasks.

When Security Server is installed on the same virtual appliance as the other GravityZone roles, you can remove it using the command-line interface of the appliance. Follow these steps:

  1. Access the appliance console from your virtualization management tool (for example, vSphere Client).

    Use the arrow keys and the Tab key to navigate through menus and options. Press Enter to select a specific option.

  2. In the Appliance Options menu, go to Advanced Settings.

  3. Select Uninstall Security Server. A confirmation window is displayed.

  4. Press the Y key, or press Enter while having the Yes option selected to continue. Wait until the uninstallation finishes.
