VMware Cloud Foundation NSX Edge Removal Tool

November 17, 2020

VMware Cloud Foundation provides automation to deploy and configure NSX edge clusters. However, this automation does not yet include the ability to remove a deployed edge cluster. To remove an edge cluster previously deployed by the SDDC Manager, VMware provides the "edge cleaner" tool. This tool is available as part of the knowledge base article  https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/78635. Download the tool to the SDDC Manager, extract the tarball, and remove edge clusters previously deployed using the SDDC Manager.
