How to manually remove a missing host from SCVMM

leave a comment »

You may see the following error when trying to remove a “dead” host from your SCVMM console.

Error (406)
Access has been denied while contacting the server <servername>. 

Recommended Action
1. Verify that the specified user account has administrative privileges on <servername>.
2. Verify that DCOM access, launch, and activation permissions are enabled on <servername> for the Administrators group. Use dcomcnfg.exe to modify permissions, and then try the operation again.

If that server is no longer online you need a way to remove it from your SCVMM. To do that you may use the PowerShell that come with the SCVMM console:

get-vmmserver <Vmm_Server_Name>
Than forcibly remove the missing host server by running:
remove-vmhost <Host_Server_Name> –force
Wait a few seconds and the host should be removed from the console.
