VMware MOB Extension Details

You may come across an instance where you need to remove an extension (Update Manager, vSphere Replication, vRealize Operations, etc.) and you follow directions only to find that you don’t actually know what the extension is called in the Managed Object Browser of your vCenter (https://[vCenter or IP]/mob).  Belwo is a helpful chart that should tie together the name in the MOB relative to its actual function.
