If you remove a template from the inventory, it is unregistered from the vCenter Server inventory, but it is not removed from the datastore.

Before you begin

You must be connected to vCenter Server to remove a template from the inventory. You cannot work with templates if you connect directly to an ESXi host.

Procedure

  1. Right-click the template, and select Remove from Inventory.
  2. Click OK to confirm removing the template from the vCenter Server database.

    The template is unregistered from the vCenter Server inventory.
