QA #13 Hyper-V Host removed SCVMM (error 406)


Hyper-V Host removed SCVMM

When I tried to delete Hyper-V Host from System Center Virtual Machine Manager error occurred. Host is not working properly and should be evicted from cluster and removed from VMM environment and then reinstalled. How can I handle this issue? Hyper-V Host removed SCVMM.

When Hyper-V Host is crashed in some cases remove them from VMM is not easy. VMM tried communicate host and perform some tasks during deletion. To force this action you should:

  • Turn off affected Hyper-V Host (if you want remove them from VMM I assume that you can shut down as well),
  • Try once again to remove them from VMM.

SC VMM remove result.

In this case you will receive warning instead of error. Warning tells you that VMM agent can’t be uninstalled from Hyper-V Host what is part of deletion. It’s not the issue this time.

  • You can also start VMM Powershell, connect to VMM server and then force deletion:

remove-vmhost <Host_Server_Name> –force
