Hi All,

I relocated one of our ESX server to a new office.

I renamed the host name in ESX admin console and assigned a network information.

When i try to add the host into vCenter I get the following error message

name in use
Any suggestions?

So you had disconnected and removed the Host from vCenter and now you are trying to re-add the host?

Oh I just have to disconnect the old host.  I thought I could just rename it and it's leave all the old config in place.

Thanks
