You can deactivate an application service to stop monitoring the application service that is sending data to vRealize Operations Manager.

Prerequisite
  • If plugin deactivation requires the location of a file (for example, client certificates for SSL Trust) on the endpoint VM, the location and the files should have appropriate read permissions for the arcuser to access those files.
    Note: If the plugin displays a permission denied status, provide the arcuser with permissions to the file locations that you have specified during plugin activation.

Deactivate an Application Service

To deactivate a plugin to stop monitoring the application service that is sending data to vRealize Operations Manager, complete the following steps:

  1. Navigate to the Inventory > Manage Agents tab.
  2. Select the VM on which the agent is already installed.
  3. Select the Manage Service icon and then from the drop-down menu select the service name.
  4. Deactivate the application service from the right pane of the Manage <service name> Agent dialog box.
  5. Click Save.

When you stop an agent, you cannot activate or deactivate a plugin. If the VM is powered off or if you lose connection with vRealize Application Remote Collector, you cannot configure or activate a plugin.
