If a node in the VMware Identity Manager cluster is not functioning correctly and you are unable to recover it, you can remove it from the cluster with the Remove Node command. The command removes the node entries from the VMware Identity Manager database.

You can check the health of the nodes in your cluster by viewing their status in the System Diagnostics Dashboard. A The current node is in a bad state message indicates that the node is not functioning correctly.

Important:

Use the Remove Node command sparingly. Only use it when a node is in an unrecoverable state and must be removed completely from the VMware Identity Manager deployment.

Note:

You cannot use the Remove Node command to remove the last node in a cluster.
