An orphaned node is a duplicate node that is reported on the host but does not exist on the host.


When you verify that each IaaS and virtual appliance node is in a healthy state, you might discover that a host has one or more orphaned nodes. You must delete all orphaned nodes.


  1. On your primary vRealize Automation appliance, log in to vRealize Automation Appliance Management as root using the password you entered when you deployed the vRealize Automation appliance.
  2. Select vRA settings > Cluster.
  3. For each orphaned node in the table, click Delete.
