You can remove a Satellite from the Server Hierarchy listing when that device is no longer needed to perform Satellite functions. The device’s object isn’t removed from ZENworks; it is just removed from the Server Hierarchy listing. However, removing a Satellite from the hierarchy listing does cause the content, imaging, or collection roll‑up information to be removed from the device.
When you remove a Satellite, the managed devices that used it must be reconfigured to use another server for content and collection purposes. For more information, see Section 9.0, Closest Server Rules.
You cannot use this option to remove a Primary Server from the listing.
To remove a Satellite:
For the Satellite that you want to remove, make a note of all devices that are using it for content and collection information roll-up.
In ZENworks Control Center, click thetab.
In the Server Hierarchy panel, select the check box next to the Satellite that you want to remove from the zone.
To confirm the removal, click.
As necessary, reconfigure the managed devices that used the Satellite so that they can continue to receive content and roll up collection information.
For more information, see Section 9.0, Closest Server Rules.
(Conditional) The Imaging role is immediately removed from the device. If the role is not immediately removed, it is removed only during the next device refresh schedule. If you want to immediately remove the role from the device, manually refresh the device in one of the following ways:
In thetab > the , select the check box next to the devices you want to refresh, then click > .
On the Windows managed device, right-click the icon, then click.
