Disable PX-Central components

If you installed the PX-Central components using Helm, you can use Helm to disable them as well.


Ensure the PX-Central components are installed.


You can disable the PX-Backup, license server, and monitoring service components individually or all together using one command.

NOTE: Before disabling each PX-Central component or all at once, you must perform the following steps.
  1. Update your Helm reports.

    helm repo update
  2. Retrieve all custom values you used during install. Generate a YAML file, replacing the values of the  and  parameters to match your environment.

    helm get values --namespace <docs-namespace> <release-name> -o yaml > values.yaml
  3. Delete the post install hook job.

    kubectl delete job pxcentral-post-install-hook --namespace <namespace>

After performing the above steps, disable each component.

  1. Disable PX-Backup.

    helm upgrade <release-name> <repo-name>/px-central --namespace <namespace> -f values.yaml --set pxbackup.enabled=false
  2. Disable license server.

    helm upgrade <release-name> <repo-name>/px-central --namespace <namespace> -f values.yaml --set pxlicenseserver.enabled=false
  3. Disable monitoring service.

    helm upgrade <release-name> <repo-name>/px-central --namespace <namespace> -f values.yaml --set pxmonitor.enabled=false
  4. Disable all PX-Central components at once.

    helm upgrade <release-name> <repo-name>/px-central --namespace <namespace> -f values.yaml --set pxbackup.enabled=false,pxmonitor.enabled=false,pxlicenseserver.enabled=false
