You can use the vdmadmin command with the -S option to remove the entry for a View Connection Server instance from the View Manager configuration.


vdmadmin -S [-b authentication_arguments] -r -s server

To ensure high availability, View Manager allows you to configure one or more replica View Connection Server instances in a View Connection Server group. If you disable a View Connection Server instance in a group, the entry for the server persists within the View Manager configuration.

To make the removal permanent, perform these tasks:

1

Uninstall the View Connection Server instance from the Windows Server computer by running the View Connection Server installer.

2

Remove the Adam Instance VMwareVDMDS program from the Windows Server computer by running the Add or Remove Programs tool.

3

On another View Connection Server instance, use the vdmadmin command to remove the entry for the uninstalled View Connection Server instance from the configuration.

If you want to reinstall VMware View on the removed systems without replicating the View configuration of the original group, restart all the View Connection Server hosts in the original group before performing the reinstallation. This prevents the reinstalled View Connection Server instances from receiving configuration updates from their original group.

The -s option specifies the NetBIOS name of the View Connection Server instance to be removed.

Remove the entry for the View Connection Server instance connsvr3.

vdmadmin -S -r -s connsvr3
