Secondary sites can be removed from within the parent site's Configuration Manager console using the Delete Secondary Site Wizard.

When removing a secondary site using the Delete Secondary Site Wizard, you must choose whether to delete or uninstall the secondary site:

When Configuration Manager 2007 sites are deleted, the deleted site information is only deleted from the deleted site's direct parent site. Site deletion information is not propagated up the hierarchy to grandparent sites. In order to delete the site from the site database at sites above the deleted site's direct parent site, the hierarchy maintenance tool (Preinst.exe) must be run on every primary site above the deleted site's parent primary site using the command Preinst /delsite. For more information about the hierarchy maintenance tool, see Hierarchy Maintenance Tool (Preinst.exe).

To start the Delete Secondary Site Wizard

  1. In the Configuration Manager console, navigate to System Center Configuration Manager / Site Database / Site Management / <site code> - <site name> / <secondary site code> - <secondary site name>.

  2. Right-click <secondary site code> - <secondary site name> and click Delete.
