You can remove a vCenter HA configuration from the vSphere Client.


  1. Log in to the Active node vCenter Server Appliance and click Configure.
  2. Under Settings select vCenter HA and click Remove VCHA.
    • The vCenter HA cluster's configuration is removed from the Active, Passive, and Witness nodes.
    • You can choose to delete the Passive and Witness nodes.
    • The Active node continues to run as a standalone vCenter Server Appliance.
    • You cannot reuse the Passive and Witness nodes in a new vCenter HA configuration.
    • If you performed a manual configuration, or if the Passive and Witness nodes are not discoverable, you must delete these nodes explicitly.
    • Even if the second virtual NIC was added by the configuration process, the removal process does not remove the virtual NIC.
