vCloud Director (vCD for short) relies heavily on the vCenter Servers and host machines it uses. And there may be times when you want to “uninstall” all traces of vCD from your servers and machines. CloudCleaner is a free product that helps restore these systems to a clean state. It selectively (or completely) removes all vCD-created virtual machines, resource pools, network pools, and networks. It can also unprepare hosts that have been prepared by vCD.
