You can deregister the Skyline Collector from VMware. Deregistration permanently removes the Skyline Collector from the VMware Skyline service.

Deregistering the Collector removes all configuration information, disables all endpoint collection, and resets the collector state back to the default. Additionally, deregistration removes the Skyline Collector from participating in the Customer Experience Improvement Program (CEIP) "Enhanced" participation level.

Initial Configuration of the Skyline Collector will need to be completed again after deregistration has been completed. This includes registering the token with a VMware Cloud Services Organization, as well as adding products to the Skyline Collector for product usage data collection.

Procedure

  1. Click System Status.
  2. Click Collector.
  3. Click Deregister.

Results

Deregistering removes the Skyline Collector from participating in the Customer Experience Improvement Program (CEIP) Enhanced participation level for that instance only. Other installations of the Skyline Collector appliance are not impacted or updated.
