Remove esxi host from virtualisation manager

Jump to solution

Morning all, I have bought a 64 socket license but i have sockets 68 registered within Vcentre.

I dont want to monitor one of the ESXi hosts which has 4 sockets, so is it possible to exclude / remove the host from the manager so that the license will be compliant.

Thanks in advance

cwstad What you will have to do is create a new monitoring account in vCenter, and use the roles & permissions to hide the unwanted esx hosts to this account. Once you have this account setup, delete the old credential from Virtualization Manager and add this new one.

Unbelievable. I looked at this and thought you were off your rocker for bit!... Spent half an hour combing through VMAN and the various manuals... No, that really is it. I'm sorry I doubted you.
