Nov 29, 2012
Important: When you remove a server from a resource pool, all VM data stored on local disks (local storage) will be erased. If you have important data on local virtual disks, you must move the disks to a shared storage repository in the same resource pool before removing the server.
  1. Move any data stored on local disks to a shared storage repository in the same resource pool; see Move virtual disks.
  2. Shut down any VMs running on the server; see Shut Down a VM.
  3. In the Resources pane, select the server and do one of the following:
    • Right-click and click Remove Server from Pool in the Resources pane shortcut menu.
    • In the Pool menu, click Remove Server.
