  • 1.  Orphaned host, how to remove?

    Posted May 18, 2011 11:22 AM

    Hello,

    I removed an ESXi 4.0 host from a HA/DRS-cluster the other day and it disappearred from the inventory and also it doesn't show up if I run Get-VMHost from PowerCLI. But if I look in the /var/log/vmware/aam/aam_config_util_listprimaries.log file the hosts shows up as "HOSTNAME    Secondary    Node Failed"

    Does anyone have an idea how I can remove the host completely?

    I tried Remove-VMHost HOSTNAME from PowerCLI but then I get "Could not find VMHost with name HOSTNAME", and I've also tried running the Cli at /opt/vmware/aam/bin with the command deleteNode HOSTNAME and then I get "No Errors Reported" but the host still shows up when running listnodes.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Hello.

    Note: This discussion was moved from the VMware ESXi 4 community to the HA & FT community.

    Good Luck!

    How about reconfigure the entire HA Cluster. Just remove the tick mark allow the HA agents to get un-installed and rey to isntall it again. This might work for you
