  • 1.  I want to remove the last esxi 7 host with VDS from a cluster

    hello everyone,

    I want to remove the last esxi 7 host with VDS from a cluster of a vCenter 7.0.3 so I can remove the cluster.

    I would like to know if this would be the correct steps to remove the host with VDS from a cluster.

    1.-Put the host in maintenance
    2.- As it has the 3 vCLS virtual machines I understand that I would have to apply this kb "How to Disable vCLS on a Cluster via Retreat Mode (91890)". With this the 3 vCLS virtual machines disappear and you could delete the datastore where they were.
    3.-Create a standard switch to migrate VMkernel of management
    4.- Eliminate the VDS host
    5.- Remove from vCenter inventory
    6.- Remove the cluste
