Reinstalling Vcenter

I would like to know if I uninstall then reinstall Vcenter application, whether there is any data that can be lost, example vmware configuration or anything else.

Thank you

If you are retain/backup the vCenter DB then you will be able to get the data back when you install the vCenter again.

This Below KB will help you with the steps

It's ALL stored in the SQL database.

So unless you trash, re-install a new database, you'll be okay using an existing database,  provided it's working!

When you login into the web client, don't you see vSphere replication on the home page?
All the replication data will be stored in that. If you select vsphere replication and click on monitor it will shows you the outgoing replications and incoming replications.

in that case it's in the Appliance database.

When I login to Web client , I can see the Vsphere Replication , but when I click on it there is nothing in Sites…

Andrew is saying the Data could be stored in the Appliance Database… How do I make it show in the Web client /Vsphere Replication?

Have you checked it's registered correctly, with vCenter Server, since you have re-installed?

Can you create new jobs, and do they appear?

Can you execute new jobs correctly?

I guess it needs to be reregistered with vcenter after the reinstall of vcenter…
hopefully is not something complicated
