Unable to Disassociate Host from vCenter

pjam asked
Last Modified: 2016-03-08
We recently were migrated back to our parent companies domain.
they decided to rename the server that vCenter was installed on and now it is a complete mess.
I want to uninstall vCenter and re-install on another server.  The current server is also the print server, hence the server name rename.
I found this post answered by Andrew on how to disassociate the Host from vCenter.

However mine only shows this:
vSphere client StatusIf I click on it I get taken to the VMWare downloads page.
Also there is a note at the top that says the logs are stored on  non persistent storage (the old servername and domain)
configuration issuesWhat can i do?
Should i proceed with the uninstall anyway?
