Remove ESXi 5 host from vCenter 5

Jump to solution

I have a vCenter 5 server that I want to remove some standalone hosts from & add to another vCenter but these hosts the Remove option is greyed out.

Other standalone hosts in this vCenter I can remove.

This is a fresh installation of vCenter and ESXi 5 Update 1 hosts.  All of the host are at level 721882.  I've tried putting them in maintenance mode, rebooting them, disconnect them but Remove is still not a selectable option.

Any help is appreciated.  Thanks.

before trying to remove the host record from your vCenter Database, have you tried restarting your vCenter Server Service?

I hadn't tried that.  Did it and now can remove the rest of the hosts.  I love consistency in a product!

Thanks for your help.
