Uninstall the Security VM

To uninstall a Security VM, you delete it.

Before you start, ensure that guest VMs will continue to be protected. Go to the Security VM and View protected guest VMs. Then move guest VMs to another Security VM with similar policy settings.

To move your guest VMs:

  1. Uninstall the Guest VM Agent, see Uninstall the Guest VM Agent.
  2. Reinstall the Guest VM Agent with the new Security VM IP address. See the Sophos for Virtual Environments startup guide.

Once you have moved your guest VMs you can delete the Security VM. To do this:

  1. Go to your hypervisor.
  2. Power down the Security VM.
  3. Delete the VM.
