You can use Horizon Console to remove a pod that was previously joined to the pod federation. You might want to remove a pod from the pod federation if it is being recommissioned for another purpose or if it was wrongly configured.

To remove the last pod in the pod federation, you must uninitialize the Cloud Pod Architecture feature. See Uninitialize the Cloud Pod Architecture Feature in Horizon Console.

Important: Do not stop or start a Connection Server instance while it is being removed from a pod federation. The Connection Server service might not restart correctly.


  1. In the Horizon Administrator user interface for any Connection Server instance in the pod that you want to remove from the pod federation, click Horizon Console.
  2. Select Settings > Cloud Pod Architecture, select the pod to unjoin, and click Unjoin.
  3. To begin the unjoin operation ,click OK.
    Horizon Console shows the progress of the unjoin operation.
