To do item after the P2V of an HP ProLiant Server: Uninstall the “HP Network Configuration Utility”

There are a lot items required to do after you virtualize physical servers such as uninstalling the hardware specific applications and removing hidden devices but one of the items I find people tend to miss for HP servers is the HP Network Configuration Utility because you can’t uninstall that via add/remove programs or programs and features.

To remove the HP ProLiant NIC utilities, simply open up the Network Connections window, right click on the NIC as you would if you were configuring the IP address, select HP Network Configuration Utility from the list and click on the Uninstall button.
