How to remove failed vCenter from SRM 8.2 Photon appliance

VCenter has failed and was replaced with a new instance of vcenter, but when I try to remove the old one from SRM 8.2 appliance, breaking site pair fails. Assumption is it can’t connect to the removed vCenter(PSC). Any suggestion how to clean it up?

Since you have replaced your vCenter server completely,You cannot make use of the same SRM database anymore. You need to re-initiate SRM on both the sites with new database.

SRM identifies the vCenter via UUID and not hostname. So if the vCenter is replaced I believe you cannot make use of the existing SRM configuration anymore.

Hope this helps.
