To uninstall View Agent on a Linux virtual machine, you use the uninstall_viewagent.sh script. You also must remove the Horizon 6 for Linux configuration files from the machine.

Prerequisites

Procedure

  1. Open a terminal window on the virtual machine and run the View Agent uninstall script.

    For example:

    sudo /usr/lib/vmware/viewagent/bin/uninstall_viewagent.sh

    The script stops View Agent processes, deletes the View Agent service, and deletes the View Agent installation directory, /usr/lib/vmware/viewagent.

  2. Manually delete the Horizon 6 for Linux configuration files, located in the /etc/vmware/ directory.

    If you intend to reinstall View Agent (for example, to upgrade to a later View Agent version), you do not have to delete these configuration files.

    delete /etc/vmware/viewagent-machine.cfg 
    delete /etc/vmware/viewagent-config.txt 
    delete /etc/vmware/jms 
    delete /etc/vmware/ssl
