You can disable vSphere with Tanzu from a vSphere cluster that uses a single vSphere Lifecycle Manager image, to make it available for traditional workloads.

When you disable a vSphere with Tanzu on a cluster, vSphere Lifecycle Manager uninstalls the Spherelet VIB and image from each ESXi host and the WCP service stops and deletes all workloads from the cluster.


  1. From the vSphere Client menu, select Workload Management.
  2. Select the Clusters tab.
  3. Select the cluster on which you want to disable vSphere with Tanzu.
  4. Click Disable.
    The Disable Cluster dialog box appears with a message that all Kubernetes workloads and NSX configuration will be disabled on the cluster.
  5. Click Disable.
