If your NSX Data Center for vSphere environment uses a partner service for Guest Introspection or Guest Introspection and Network Introspection, delete the partner service deployment before migration.
You must also delete the Guest Introspection instance (GI-SVM) so that the Guest Introspection module is uninstalled from the clusters.
If your NSX for vSphere environment uses a partner service only for Network Introspection, you have the flexibility to decide whether to delete the partner service deployment before or after the migration. When a partner service deployment is deleted, the partner service virtual machines (SVMs) are removed from the NSX-v prepared host cluster, and security protection is lost.
- Log in to the vSphere Client and navigate to .
- Select the deployed service and click Delete.
