Before you can remove a node from a VMware Identity Manager cluster, you must ensure that the node's connector component is not joined to any domains, is not being used as a sync connector, and is not associated with the Built-in identity provider.

Prerequisites

You must log in as a tenant administrator, that is, a local administrator on the VMware Identity Manager service. A domain administrator synced from the enterprise directory does not have the necessary permissions.

Procedure

  1. Log in to the administration console.
  2. Click the Identity & Access Management tab, then click Setup.

    The Connectors page is displayed.

  3. If the connector component of the node is joined to the domain, leave the domain.
    1. In the Connectors page, locate the connector component of the node you want to remove.

      The connector component has the same name as the node.

    2. If the Available Actions column displays a Leave Domain button, click the button to leave the domain.
  4. If the connector component of the node is being used as the sync connector for any directory, change the directory's Sync Connector setting to use another connector instead.
    1. In the Associated Directory column in the Connectors page, view the directories with which the connector component is associated.
    2. Click a directory link.
    3. In the Directory Sync and Authentication section of the directory page, check the value of the Sync Connector option.
    4. If the connector component is being used as the sync connector, select another connector for the Sync Connector option and click Save.
    5. Repeat these steps for all the directories with which the connector component is associated.
  5. If the connector component is associated with the Built-in identity provider, remove it from the identity provider.
    1. In the Connectors page, in the Identity Provider column, view the identity providers with which the connector component is associated.
    2. If the Built-in identity provider is listed, click on the link.
    3. In the identity provider page, in the Connectors section, click the delete icon next to the connector.

What to do next

Remove the node from the cluster.
