If you want to remove a cloud cell from your vCloud Director installation, in order to reinstall the software, or for some other reason, you can delete the cell.

You can also delete a cell if it becomes unreachable.


You must stop the cell using the service vmware-vcd stop command.


  1. Click the Manage & Monitor tab and click Cloud Cells in the left pane.
  2. Right-click the cell name and select Delete.


vCloud Director removes information about the cell from its database.
