VCSA with X-Large deployed question

Dear All,

     I have wrongly chosen X-Large during installation of VCSA 6.7, and this VCSA have cluster and 2 hosts added, and found the deployed size around 1.4TB, just wonder if I can redeploy another VCSA with tiny size by disconnect the 2 hosts from current VCSA, and after deployed a new VCSA with tiny size and added back the 2 hosts in it, any help would be appreciated

it's a simple task should not take too long.

and I can simply unassign the VM license and re-assign back to new deployed VCSA ?

You may find, that the ESXI licenses will already be assigned, if they are not just re-adds them to vCenter Server (VCSA)

yes sure no problem to do that
also check if you want to tick the THIN option when deploying vCSA (whichever deployment size you choose)
it is chosen during vCSA deployment, when you select a target datastore to store the VM
