The method for uninstalling Google Cloud Migrate for Compute Engine (formerly Velostrata) depends on how you were using it. If you were migrating from another cloud into GCP, see Uninstalling Migrate for Compute Engine (cloud-to-cloud migrations). If you were migrating from on-premises to GCP, see Uninstalling Migrate for Compute Engine from on-prem).
Uninstalling Migrate for Compute Engine (cloud-to-cloud migrations)
To uninstall Migrate for Compute Engine using the Migrate for Compute Engine Web Manager:
- Login to and click Target Cloud.
- Select the applicable Cloud Extension and click Delete. If there are any remaining workloads managed by Migrate for Compute Engine on this cloud extension, the operation aborts and you have a choice about how to proceed. You can either detach and clean-up, or move the workloads back to the source cloud using Wave management. Repeat the cloud extension deletion operation.
- Repeat the previous step for all Cloud Extensions.
- Delete the Velostrata Manager instance using the GCP console.
Uninstalling Migrate for Compute Engine from on-premises
To uninstall Migrate for Compute Engine from on-premises:
