Assuming you're not using vDS, just follow the first part of the following VMware KB article: https://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=1004775

To remove the ESXi/ESX host from vCenter Server:

  1. Click Inventory in the navigation bar, expand the Inventory as needed, and click the appropriate managed host.
  2. Right-click the managed host icon in the inventory panel and select Disconnect (wait for the task to complete).
  3. Right-click the managed host icon in the Inventory panel and select Remove.
  4. Click Yes to confirm that you want to remove the managed host and all its associated virtual machines.

Since your host are already disconnected, just follow the steps 3 & 4.
