If you remove an association between an NSX cloud account and a vCenter cloud account, you also need to update the related network profiles to remove the associated NSX objects.

If you remove an association between an NSX cloud account and a vCenter cloud account, the infrastructure elements are not updated automatically by vRealize Automation Cloud. You must update your existing network profiles to remove the associated NSX objects.

The user interface provides information to help highlight the impacted network profile elements as follows:
  • If the network profile has an NSX existing network selected:
    • The object is marked as invalid and the message Some network objects are missing or invalid. is displayed.
    • The objects are removed when you save the network profile.
  • If the network profile has app isolation configured, you must update the Isolation policy settings before the network profile can be saved.
  • If the network profile has security groups or load balancers selected, the objects are removed when you save the network profile.

Existing deployments continue to work as designed for existing components, but will fail when creating new components, for example in a scale-out operation.

If you re-establish the association, the network profile is repopulated and existing deployments work as designed.

If you remove the NSX cloud account, the above behavior is the same, but network objects are marked as missing rather than invalid.
