You delete the entry for a node from the Distributed Deployment Information table when the node is removed from your deployment cluster or when you are replacing a Management Agent certificate.


  1. Log in to the vRealize Appliance by using the user name root and the password you specified when you deployed the appliance.
  2. Click vRA Settings.
  3. Click the Cluster tab.

    The Distributed Deployment Information table displays a list of nodes for the distributed deployment.

  4. Locate the node ID for the node to be deleted and copy the ID to use in the next step.
  5. Open a command prompt and type a command of the following form, using the node ID you previously copied.
    /usr/sbin/vcac-config cluster-config-node 
    --action delete --id node-UID 
  6. Click Refresh.

    The node no longer appears in the display.
