Deactivate a Supervisor Service version if you no longer want to use it with Kubernetes workloads in your vSphere with Tanzu environment. A deactivated service version continues to run on the Supervisor Clusters where it is installed, but you cannot install a deactivated service version on other Supervisor Clusters. When you deactivate an entire service, all of the service versions become deactivated, you cannot add new service versions or install them on Supervisor Clusters, until you reactivate the service.
