Uninstalling guest introspection removes a VIB from the hosts in the cluster and removes the service virtual machine from each host in the cluster. Guest Introspection is required for Identity Firewall, Endpoint Monitoring, and several third-party security solutions. Uninstalling guest introspection can have wide ranging impacts.
There is a loss of protection for VMs in the NSX cluster. You must vMotion the VMs out of the cluster before you uninstall.
To uninstall Guest Introspection:
- In vCenter, navigate to Home > Networking & Security > Installation and select the Service Deployments tab.
- Select a Guest Introspection instance and click the delete icon.
- Either delete now or schedule the deletion for a later time.
