When a resource is no longer needed or available, you can offboard the resource to remove it from the system.

When you offboard a virtual cluster, you also offboard its associated virtual resource pools, virtual hosts, and virtual disk repositories.
- Virtual host — You can offboard a virtual host when there are no virtual guests associated with it.
- Virtual resource pool — You can offboard a virtual resource pool when when there are no virtual guests associated with it.
- Virtual disk repository — You can offboard a virtual disk repository at any time.
- Physical server — You can offboard a physical server when there are no cloud services running on it.
