"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you use vSphere 5.0 or above just follow these steps:

connect directly to your ESXi host using the vSphere Client
select the ESXi host in the left inventory panel
change to the “Summary” tab
scroll down till you see the “Host Management” section
In the “Host Management” section you have two possibilities:


Reconnect vSphere Client to this vCenter Server…
Disassociate host from vCenter Server…
