I had a customer asking this week how he could delete an advanced setting that he had incorrectly added to vCenter Server. Some of you may have found yourself in this situation as well where you realized you made a typo while creating an advanced setting for the vCenter Server configuration. Unfortunately, there’s no option to delete an advanced setting in the H5 interface, but you can manually remove them via the command-line. It is rather straight forward:
- SSH to you vCenter Server
- Go to the “shell”
- go to director: /etc/vmware-vpx/
- Edit the file “vpxd.cfg”
- Simply find the entry and delete the entry (with “vi” you use “/” to search)
- Restart VPXD by running the following command
service-control --restart vmware-vpxd
And that is it, now your advanced setting should be cleared, I will put in a request though for a “delete option” in the H5 interface.

Helped me very much thank you, except restart command goes with — when you paste it is a single -. Note
