About this task
This topic discusses how to uninstall a VIB package using the esxcli command. For more details, see the vSphere Upgrade documentation.
In the procedure, --server=server_name specifies the target server. The specified target server prompts you for a user name and password. Other connection options, such as a configuration file or session file, are supported. For a list of connection options, see Getting Started with vSphere Command-Line Interfaces.
