Uninstalling Veeam MP for VMware (Auto-Deployment)

In case you have used the Veeam VMware Collector Auto-Deployment feature to install Veeam MP for VMware, follow these steps:

  1. Uninstall the VE Service and Veeam UI.
  2. Delete Veeam management packs.


If you have chosen one of the default resource pools (All Management Servers Resource Pool, Notifications Resource Pool or AD Assignment Resource Pool) during the Veeam MP for VMware auto-deployment process, skip the first step and manually uninstall all Collectors after Veeam MP for VMware components are uninstalled.

To learn how to work around this issue, see this Veeam KB article.

Before You Begin

Before you uninstall the Veeam MP for VMware solution, perform these steps:

  1. In the Veeam UI, remove all vCenter Server connections. This will prevent Management Servers from overloading caused by a job failover after Collectors are uninstalled.
  2. Delete the resource pool that you have created for Management Servers to host Collectors.
  3. Wait for all Collectors to uninstall (this may take up to 8 hours).
