All,
Created a cluster in Hyper-V 2012 containing one HA VM. I now need to remove that VM from the cluster and move it out to a single host so I can delete the cluster. How can I safely convert an HA VM back to a 'standard' VM in Hyper-V 2012.
Thanks.

As you are going to delete the cluster, so simply just disable the HA from the cluster level

Or

If you want to remove that specific Vm from HA then simply drag that Vm outside the cluster.

Real simple question and real simple answer. Migrate the VM to a standard Hyper-V host, its now non highly available.

There's a bit more to this as non-clustered hosts don't show up in Failover Cluster Manager and Hyper-V Manager won't allow the migration of a clustered VM. This is achieved through SCVMM which does indeed let you migrate an HA VM to a non-clustered host.
Thanks.
