Scenario: I wanted to remove the vcloud director agent from an ESXi host. vCloud director had been removed from the environment so I just wanted to tidy everything up. To do this you need to remove the VIB (VMware Installation Bundle).
Firstly, list all the components on the ESXi host
# esxcli software vib list
This will output a full list of installed VIBs
uhci-usb-uhci 1.0-3vmw.500.0.0.469512 VMware VMwareCertified –
vcloud-agent 1.5.0-453916 VMware VMwareCertified 2012-09-07
vmware-fdm 5.0.0-623373 VMware VMwareCertified 2012-09-24
Then all we need to do is remove the vib.
# esxcli software vib remove -n vcloud-agent
