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.

Removing a pod from the pod federation permanently deletes all global entitlements, federation access groups, and federation access group permissions for the pod. Global entitlements, federation access groups, and permissions remain on the other pods in the pod federation.

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.


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


  1. Log in to the Horizon Console user interface for any Connection Server instance in the pod that you want to remove from the pod federation.
  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.
