You can uninstall the VSA cluster service from a Linux machine.

The procedure assumes that the VSA cluster service was installed in an $INSTALL_HOME directory. The default $INSTALL_HOME directory is ~vmwarevcsadmin/VSAClusterService-5.x. If you used the -d command-line option to set another directory during installation, use the directory you specified.


Obtain the root privileges before starting the procedure. Run the uninstall script as a root user.


  1. Run $INSTALL_HOME/setup/ to uninstall the VSA Cluster Service.
  2. Confirm that you want to delete the $INSTALL_HOME directory, vmwarevcsadmin user, and the user home directory.
  3. (Optional) If you manually changed the firewall rules when installing the VSA cluster service, reverse the changes.
