You can use lmvutil commands to remove a pod that was previously joined to a pod federation. You might want to remove a pod from a pod federation if it is being recommissioned for another purpose or if it was wrongly configured.
You cannot remove the last pod in a pod federation. If you want to disable the Cloud Pod Architecture feature, use the lmvutil command with the --uninitialize option. See GUID-569A06C9-1B4D-4CCF-B3DB-1AFC7318B97F.html#GUID-569A06C9-1B4D-4CCF-B3DB-1AFC7318B97F.
- Become familiar with the lmvutil command authentication options and requirements and verify that you have sufficient privileges to run the lmvutil command. See lmvutil Command Authentication.
- Determine the name of the pod to remove. You can use the lmvutil command with the --listPods option to list the names of the pods in a pod federation.

You can run this command on any View Connection Server instance in the pod federation.Important: In most circumstances, you should use the lmvutil command with the --unjoin option to remove a pod from a pod federation.lmvutil --ejectPod --pod podnameThe --pod option specifies the name of the pod to remove.For example:
lmvutil --authAs adminEast --authDomain domainEast --authPassword "*" --ejectPod --pod "East Pod 1"
