To stop using the resources of a vCenter Server instance, you can remove this vCenter Server instance from your vCloud Director installation.

Important: This procedure applies only to attached vCenter Server instances that are associated with NSX Manager instances. To retrieve and manage vCenter Server instances that are not associated with NSX Manager instances, you must use the vCloud API.

  1. On the Manage & Monitor tab, in the left pane, click vCenters.
  2. Right-click the target vCenter Server name and click Detach.
  3. Click Yes.
