If you do not plan to use a registered machine again, you can remove it from View.

There are two types of registered machines in View: RDS Hosts and Others. Unmanaged machines are in the Others category. Unmanaged machines include physical computers and virtual machines that are not managed by vCenter Server, including Horizon 6 for Linux virtual machines. They are used to form manual desktop pools that do not contain vCenter Server virtual machines.

After you remove a registered machine, it becomes unavailable in View. To make the machine available again, you must reinstall View Agent.


Verify that the registered machines that you want to remove are not being used in any desktop pool.


  1. In View Administrator, select View Configuration > Registered Machines.
  2. Click the Others tab.
  3. Select one or more machines and click Remove.
    You can select only machines that are not being used by a desktop pool.
  4. Click OK to confirm.
