  • How do you remove the VSan settings on a host without the vCenter/Cluster?

    This weekend there was an issue that caused all sorts of havoc but in the end we were unable to use the vCenter appliance we had at all. Not too big of an issue really. New vCenter is installed, new datacenter created, and a couple new clusters (production and test).

    First host to go in is our test host going into the test cluster, it goes in but gives the following issues
    "Host with Virtual SAN service enabled is not in the vCenter cluster"
    "Host cannot communicate with all other nodes in the Virtual SAN enabled cluster"
    Found host xxxxxx participating in the Virtual SAN service which is not a member of this host's vCenter cluster"
    "Virtual SAN network is not configured"

    I confirm that none of the VM's are actually on the vsandatastore so the VSan is not being used. I find the object in the Related Objects/Datastore section.

    So I can see it, I see I don't need it, and I really don't actually want it. Everything I read about disabling the VSan is written with the idea that you are disabling it at the cluster level but I just need to remove it from the host itself.

    What do I do?
