vDS is configured ? or you have just created it ?

if its configure then first you have to migrate it to standard switch, once migration is done you can delete it

you can refer below kb for migration

Sorry I should have been more clear. yes I already have a vDS switch created in my test lab and was looking for the correct way to remove a vDS.

Also when moveing from a Standard switch to vDS how can you do a live migration without dropping network connections to the client VM's???
