When you remove a member (user or group) from a local group, you do not delete the member from the system. Members of a group are called principals.


Browse to Administration > Access > Users and Groups in the vSphere Web Client.


Select the Groups tab and click the group.


In the list of group members, select the user or group and click the Remove Principal icon.


Click OK.

The principal (user or group) is removed from the group, but it is still available in the system.
