In this video, Russ Long domonstrates how to remove a host or VM from an active DRS cluster. Learn how to remove a host or VM from your clustered environment.
- [Instructor] In this lab, we are going to remove…host .212 from the DRS cluster.…Now I'll put it back later since we aren't quite finished…with the course yet, but I'm going to show you how to remove…a host from our cluster.…Now before we get too far,…we are going to need to note a few things.…First, any resource pools that the host are a part of…or through the cluster configuration are involved with,…will be removed once the host is moved out of the cluster.…
So what I'm basically saying is…when we take the host out of the cluster,…any resource pools within the cluster do not still apply…to that host.…It has been removed from the resource pool.…The only pool that host is now a part of…is its own root pool.…Because of this, it's really important we take note…of the resources and if removing this host…might cause an invalid or overcommitted cluster.…Before we can just go and drag-and-drop a host…out of the DRS cluster, we have to place a host…in maintenance mode.…
Just like we discussed earlier, this means…the host will have to migrate off all VMs…
