How do I stop do-agent from automatically reinstalling?

Monitoring CentOS

I previously enabled digitalocean's 'monitoring' feature on two of my droplets.

Subsequently. I disabled the monitoring through the control panel, and uninstalled the package using 'yum remove do-agent' and 'rm -f /etc/yum.repos.d/digitalocean-agent.repo'. However, when I reboot the droplet, I see that the yum repository is automatically re-enabled, which I don't expect.

How can I stop the digitalocean-agent repo from being automatically reinstalled on reboots?

You may want to submit a support ticket through the control panel and request that the support team take a look at this for you. There have been some changes to how monitoring works, so it's possible that there's a glitch or something else causing to reinstall or removal failure. They should be able to help you further though.
