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 Automation 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 by opening a command prompt and running the following command:
    ./vcac-config cluster-config-node --action list
  5. Locate the node ID, for example cafe.node.46686239.17144, in the JSON output.
  6. Open a command prompt and type a command of the following form, using the node ID that you obtained in the previous step.
    /usr/sbin/vcac-config cluster-config-node 
    --action delete --id node-UID 

    For example, enter the following command for the example node ID cafe.node.46686239.17144:

    ./vcac-config cluster-config-node --action delete --id cafe.node.46686239.17144
  7. Click Refresh.

    The node no longer appears in the display.
