This article documents how to manually uninstall the Veeam CDP VAIO filter driver if Veeam Backup & Replication is unavailable for any reason and the Veeam CDP filter driver needs to be removed from VCenter and the ESXi hosts.
Use VMware power-cli to uninstall the filter driver with the following PowerShell script.
Connect-VIServer -Server <vcenter-servername>
Get-VAIOFilter -name veecdp -cluster "<cluster name>"
Get-VAIOFilter -name veecdp -cluster "<cluster name>" | Remove-VAIOFilter
Once the filter drivers are removed, exit the ESXi hosts from maintenance mode. You can check the status of the filter driver directly on the ESXi hosts by connecting to them via SSH and running this command:
esxcli software vib list | grep -i vee
The last step is to remove the “Veeam CDP Replication” storage policy from VCenter.
Go to Menu -> Policy and Profiles -> VM Storage Policies -> select the “Veeam CDP Replication” policy and click delete.
