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.
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.
- Log in to the VMware Identity Manager console.
- Click the Identity & Access Management tab, then click Setup.
The Connectors page is displayed.
- 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.
- In the Associated Directory column in the Connectors page, view the directories with which the connector component is associated.
- Click a directory link.
- In the Directory Sync and Authentication section of the directory page, check the value of the Sync Connector option.
- If the connector component is being used as the sync connector, select another connector for the Sync Connector option and click Save.
- Repeat these steps for all the directories with which the connector component is associated.
- If the connector component is associated with the Built-in identity provider, remove it from the identity provider.
- In the Connectors page, in the Identity Provider column, view the identity providers with which the connector component is associated.
- If the Built-in identity provider is listed, click on the link.
- In the identity provider page, in the Connectors section, click the delete icon next to the connector.
What to do next
