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

Prerequisite
  • If plugin deactivation requires the location of a file (for example, client certificates for SSL Trust) on the end point 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.
