vSAN error when no vSAN is installed

We began receiving the "Retrieve a ticket to register the Virtual SAN VASA Provider" but don't have vSAN installed.  What's going on?  I found this article and could simply disable the vSAN Health Service.

To stop and disable the vSAN Health Service on vCenter Server for Windows

  1. Open the Services MSC
  2. Locate and "VMware Virtual SAN Health Service" service and click Stop.

  3. Double-click the VMware Virtual SAN Health Service to open its dialogue box.
  4. On the General tab, change the Startup type to Disabled and click OK

To stop and disable the vSAN Health Service on the vCenter Server Appliance

  1. Log in to the vCenter Server Appliance via SSH and activate a Bash shell. For more information on logging in to the vCenter Server appliance, see the Using the Appliance Shell to Configure the vCenter Server Appliance section in the vCenter Server Appliance Configuration guide.

  2. Stop the vSAN Health Service:
    # service vmware-vsan-health stop
    Stopping Virtual SAN Health Service:

  3. Disable the vSAN Health Service:
    # chkconfig vmware-vsan-health off
