To remove the established connection between the VMware Cloud Director Availability On-Premises Appliance and the on-premises vCenter Server, you remove the vCenter Server Lookup service from the VMware Cloud Director Availability On-Premises Appliance.

Procedure

  1. Log in to the management interface of the VMware Cloud Director Availability On-Premises Appliance.
    1. In a Web browser, go to https://On-Prem-Appliance-IP-address/ui/admin.
    2. Log in as the root user.
  2. In the left pane, click Settings.
  3. Under Service endpoints next to Lookup Service Address, click Remove.
  4. In the Remove Lookup Service Registration window, enter the single sign-on administrator user credentials and click Remove.
    The vCenter Server Lookup service is unregistered from the VMware Cloud Director Availability On-Premises Appliance configuration. After you log out and log in to vCenter Server, you can see that the VMware Cloud Director Availability vSphere Client Plug-In is unregistered from the on-premises vCenter Server.

Results

The VMware Cloud Director Availability On-Premises Appliance is ready to be configured with the vCenter Server Lookup service and allows running the initial setup wizard.

What to do next

You can use the VMware Cloud Director Availability On-Premises Appliance again, after running the initial setup wizard. If the on-premises site is still paired with a cloud site, use the same vCenter Server Lookup service as in the configuration before the pairing.
