  • Route RPKI validation April 1st, 2022
    RPKI is a security framework by which network owners can validate and secure the critical route updates or Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) announcements between public Internet networks. BGP is essentially the central nervous system of the Internet and one of its fundamental building blocks. The main function of BGP is to facilitate efficient routing between Autonomous Systems (AS), by building and maintaining the Internet routing table. The Internet routing table is effectively the navigation system of the Internet and without it, traffic would be unable to flow between its constituent networks. Unfortunately, routing equipment alone cannot distinguish between legitimate and malicious routing announcements,...
  • RIPE – Atlas Anchor February 17th, 2022
    We have become an even more integral part of the RIPE Atlas project by hosting an anchor, a device that allows for latency analysis of traffic between autonomous systems.https://atlas.ripe.net/probes/7073/RIPE Atlas anchors play an integral role in the RIPE Atlas network by acting both as enhanced RIPE Atlas probes with more measurement capacity, as well as regional measurement targets within the greater RIPE Atlas network. Anchors are able to perform many more measurements than a regular RIPE Atlas probe, and the large amount of data they collect is made available to everyone. In addition, anchors act as powerful targets that can...

Rimuovere i plugin da VMware vCenter Server

Paolo Caparrelli VMware 22 June 2022

Removing unwanted plug-ins from vCenter Server (1025360)

Symptoms

  • You are unable to remove plug-ins from the vSphere Client.
  • You see the error:

    vCenter {Plugin Name} Disabled {Plugin Name} vCenter plugin The following error occurred while downloading the script plugin from https:///vmware/Plugin-NamePlugin.xml:Invalid URI: The host name could not be parsed.


  • Even though you uninstalled plug-ins from the Windows machine on which vCenter Server is running, you still see them in the Plug-in Manager in the vSphere Client.

Purpose

When using third-party management products for vCenter Server, these plug-ins appear in the Available Plug-ins list. Some of these products may not have an uninstaller to remove the entry under Available Plug-ins.
 
This article provides the steps to remove the unwanted plug-ins from the Available Plug-ins list.

Resolution

If you have vCenter Server in linked mode, perform this procedure on the vCenter Server that is used to install the plug-in initially, then restart the vCenter Server services on the linked vCenter Server.

To resolve this issue, you have to remove unwanted plug-ins from the Available Plug-ins list.

To remove unwanted plug-ins from the Available Plug-ins list:
  1. In a web browser, navigate to http://vCenter_Server_name_or_IP/mob.
    https://vcenter.goline.ch/mob
    https://vcenter.goline.ch/mob/?moid=ExtensionManager

    Where vCenter_Server_name_or_IP/mob is the name of your vCenter Server or its IP address.

  2. Click Content.
  3. Click ExtensionManager.
  4. Select and copy the name of the plug-in you want to remove from the list of values under Properties. For a list of default plug-ins, see the Additional Information section of this article.
  5. Click UnregisterExtension. A new window appears.
  6. Paste the name of the plug-in and click Invoke Method. This removes the plug-in.
  7. Close the window.
  8. Refresh the Managed Object Type:ManagedObjectReference:ExtensionManager window to verify that the plug-in is removed successfully.
Note: If the plug-in still appears, you may have to restart the vSphere Client.
