Remove a distributed port group when you no longer need the corresponding labeled network to provide connectivity for virtual machines or VMkernel networking.


  • Verify that all virtual machines connected to the corresponding labeled network are migrated to a different labeled network.

  • Verify that all VMkernel adapters connected to the distributed port group are migrated to a different port group, or are deleted.


  1. In the vSphere Web Client, navigate to the distributed port group.
  2. From the Actions menu, select All vCenter Actions > Remove from Inventory.
