Note: All agents associated with a managed host are uninstalled when you remove a managed host.
Before removing a managed host ensure that the impact of its removal is considered. Any governed data records or activity information associated with resources on that host is removed from the database as well. Use caution when removing the governance on an item, as there may be business reasons for this setting.
It can take a considerable amount of time to remove a managed host with governed resources (for example, one to two hours per million governed resources). The Manager lists the managed host in the "Deleting" state until this process finishes.
To remove a managed host (and its agents)
- In the Navigation view, select Data Governance | Managed hosts.
Select a managed host from the Managed hosts view, and select Remove in the Tasks view or right-click menu.
Note: You can select multiple managed hosts for removal.
The Remove task is not available for host computers with a status of Not Managed.
Click Remove to confirm the removal.
If you remove a managed host with governed data, the data is no longer governed. All associated security information and resource activity is also deleted.
