To uninstall a NAS plug-in, remove the VIB package from your host.

This topic discusses how to uninstall a VIB package using the esxcli command. For more details, see the vSphere Upgrade documentation.


Install vCLI or deploy the vSphere Management Assistant (vMA) virtual machine. See Getting Started with vSphere Command-Line Interfaces. For troubleshooting, run esxcli commands in the ESXi Shell.


  1. Uninstall the plug-in:
    esxcli software vib remove -n|--vibname=name
    The name is the name of the VIB package to remove.
  2. Verify that the plug-in is removed:
    esxcli software vib list
  3. Reboot your host for the change to take effect.
