You can remove an RDS host from a farm to reduce the scale of a farm, to perform maintenance on the RDS host, or for other reasons. As a best practice, disable the RDS host and ensure that users are logged off from active sessions before you remove a host from a farm.

If users have application or desktop sessions on hosts that you remove, the sessions remain active, but View no longer keeps track of them. A user who disconnects from a session will be unable to reconnect to it, and any unsaved data might be lost.


  1. In View Administrator, select Resources > Farms.
  2. Select the RDS Hosts tab.
  3. Select one or more RDS hosts.
  4. Click Remove from farm.
  5. Click OK.
