Per PHD docs

To uninstall esXpress from an individual host there are two methods:

1 If you are using the Configuration and Deployment GUI appliance, delete the host from the GUI. This

will remove the esXpress RPMs from that host.

2 If you are running a stand-alone host, run the following commands:

rpm -e esxpressVBA

rpm –e esxpress

The post by Marvin is basically the commands to remove the rpms or do it directly from the GUI.

If you have VBAs registered in vCenter you can delete them from disk as well.

Also check if the folders /etc/phd or /home/phd still exists after doing the rpm -e commands, if they do you can delete them as well.

Any issues you can always contact our support group or for any questions regarding esXpress

Thx, I've done the following:

rpm -e esxpressVBA

rpm -e esxpress

Then I've deleted manually /etc/phd, /etc/logrotate.d/phd and /home/phd, but still have the following file:

find / -type f -name "esxpress"

find: /vmfs/devices/deltadisks/119697-esxpress_2_15-16212.vmdk.phd-delta.REDO_SRQYSF: No such file or directory

and cannot delete.

was emailed a question based on this thread the other day so I though I would post back.

The question was once esXpress was removed from a host is it safe or ok to deleteany remaining phd folders.

The answer is yes if you are no longer running esXpress then these folders can be removed.
