Fabric administrators must remove all associations to a datacenter location before it stops displaying to machine requesters as a datacenter location option.

Log in to the vCloud Automation Center console as a fabric administrator.

Your system administrator removes the datacenter from the locations file. See System Administration.


Select Infrastructure > Compute Resources > Compute Resources.


Point to a compute resource associated with the location you want to remove and click Edit.


Remove the datacenter location by selecting the blank option in the Locations drop-down menu.


Click OK.


Repeat this procedure to remove the location from all of your compute resources.

After the datacenter location is removed from all compute resources, it no longer appears to machine requesters in the locations drop-down menu.
