Removing a Node

There may come a time when you need to remove a node from your distributed deployment. To do this, you’ll need to remove the node’s configuration from a few different components.

Removing from Salt

You can remove a node from Salt by going to Administration –> Grid Members.


Find the Grid Member you would like to remove, click the REVIEW button, and then click the DELETE button.

Removing from SOC

To remove the node from the SOC Grid page, make sure the node is powered off and then restart SOC:

sudo so-soc-restart

Removing from Fleet

To remove the node from Elastic Fleet, go to the Agents tab and find the node. Then click the checkbox to the left of the node. Click the Actions button and then click Unenroll 1 agent. Select the Remove agent immediately option and then click the Unenroll agent button.
