HOWTO: Removing a standard (replica) connection server from a cluster of connection servers

To remove a replica:
  1. Uninstall the connection server and ADAM instance from the server that you want to remove from the cluster.
    1. Click Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs.
    2. Remove VMware View Connection Server and Adam Instance VMwareVDMDS.

  2. Refer to Remove View Manager Entry in the Command Line Tool for View Manager document for full details on how to use the vdmadmin.exe tool to remove the reference to the now redundant replica in the ADAM database.

    Here is an example of the command:

    "C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware View\Server\bin\vdmadmin.exe -S -r -s "

    Note: This step is not mandatory, but it clears the removed Connection Server from the Admin UI.
