Remove orphaned VEM from VSM

Some hosts in our environment were abruptly removed before the VEM could be uninstalled from the host.  This has left us with some VEMs in the VSM reported as absent.  How can I remove them?  Modules 3-6

n1kv# sho module vem mapping

Re: Remove orphaned VEM from VSM

Russell,

Try this...

n1000v-MV# config t

n1000v-MV(config)# no vem 3

That should remove it.

Funny, I thought I had already tried that.  It worked.  Thanks.

Re: Remove orphaned VEM from VSM

I have a vem out there from an ESXi host that no longer exists.  When I issue this

command I get:

* this terminal session

switch(config-vem-slot)# sh mod vem mapping

I want to remove mod 5.  When I try I get:

cannot modify slot 5: host module is inserted

I can't delete vem 5.  Please help.

Re: Remove orphaned VEM from VSM

The error says it's still inserted. Can you run "show module" and make sure Module 5 does not show up? If it stil shows up then the you will have to first disconnect that ESX host from the N1KV from within vCenter.

Re: Remove orphaned VEM from VSM

Thanks for input.  Long story, but the reason the VEM was still showing up is because the host was still on line.  My bad.  It should have been deleted as was not.
