Depending on your requirement, you can move hosts out of a fault domain.


Verify that the host is online. You cannot move hosts that are offline or unavailable from a fault domain.


  1. Navigate to the vSAN cluster.
  2. Click the Configure tab.
  3. Under vSAN, click Fault Domains.
    1. Click and drag the host from the fault domain to the Standalone Hosts area.
    2. Click Move to confirm.


The selected host is no longer part of the fault domain. Any host that is not part of a fault domain is considered to reside in its own single-host fault domain.

What to do next

You can add hosts to fault domains. See Move Host into Selected Fault Domain in vSAN Cluster.
