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.
About this task
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 Disable the Cloud Pod Architecture Feature.
Do not stop or start a View Connection Server instance while it is being unjoined from a pod federation. The View Connection Server service might not restart correctly.
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.
- If the pod is available, run the lmvutil comand with the --unjoin option.
You must run this command on a View Connection Server instance in the pod that you want to remove from the pod federation.
lmvutil --authAs adminEast --authDomain domainEast --authPassword "*" --unjoin
- If the pod is not available (for example, in the case of a hardware failure), run the lmvutil command with the --ejectPod option.
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 podname
The --pod option specifies the name of the pod to remove.
lmvutil --authAs adminEast --authDomain domainEast --authPassword "*" --ejectPod --pod "East Pod 1"
