You can remove port groups from vSphere Standard Switches in case you no longer need the associated labeled networks.


Verify that there are no powered-on virtual machines connected to the port group that you want to remove.


  1. In the vSphere Web Client, navigate to the host.
  2. On the Configure tab, expand Networking and select Virtual switches.
  3. Select the standard switch.
  4. From the topology diagram of the switch, select the port group that you want to remove by clicking its label.
  5. From the toolbar in the switch topology, click the Remove selected port group action icon .
