Remove the host.

In QuantaStor, the "Remove Host" feature serves the purpose of removing a host or system from the QuantaStor system's management and control.

When you remove a host in QuantaStor, it typically involves removing the associated network connections, access permissions, and any configurations related to that specific host. This action essentially disconnects and removes the host from the QuantaStor management framework. If the host is in use, the "Force" option will override to remove the host.

WARNING: Any active iSCSI sessions with this host will be dropped.

The purpose of removing a host in QuantaStor can be for several reasons:

  • Decommissioning: When a host is no longer in use or needs to be retired from the QuantaStor system, you can remove it to clean up the management interface and simplify the administration process.
  • Reconfiguration: If you need to reconfigure a host's network connections or access permissions, removing the host allows you to start fresh and set up the host with updated settings.
  • System maintenance: During system maintenance activities or changes in the network infrastructure, removing a host temporarily can help in isolating and resolving issues before reintroducing it to the QuantaStor system.
  • Security: If there are security concerns or unauthorized access from a specific host, removing it from the QuantaStor system can revoke its access privileges and enhance the overall security of the storage environment.

It's important to note that removing a host in QuantaStor does not impact the host or its data itself. It only removes the host's management presence within QuantaStor. The actual impact on the host or its connectivity depends on how the host is configured outside of the QuantaStor system.
