How to remove vShield port group without vShield Manager

We are attempting to remove vShield from our ESX host.  Due to a crash vSheld manager is gone and we want to disco vShield entirely incuding the port group, without rebuilding the ESX host.  How do we go about completing this task?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

you should be able to do this without rebuilding the host, but it will require some rebuilding of Virtual Switches, and new portgroups.

can you send a screenshot of the current network configuration, and let us know what portgroups you need to keep, also is this a production server with live virtual machines?
