Citrix Cloud – Unable to delete hosting connection, Error Connection “Connection name” cannot be deleted because it is being used by the following Objects and/or background actions.

1. Download and install Citrix Remote PowerShell SDK

https://docs.citrix.com/en-us/citrix-virtual-apps-desktops-service/sdk-api.html

Note: It recommend not to install Remote PowerShell SDK with any other Citrix Components installed. For instance, do not install Remote PowerShell SDK on a Cloud Connector.

2. Add the Citrix snap-ins:

asnp Citrix*

3. Authenticate to Citrix Cloud.

Note: If you have multiple Customers associated to your account you will get a drop down to select the correct one that you are targeting.

Get-XdAuthentication

4. Get the PS Path of the hosting connection and resource(s)

ls XDHyp:Connectionsconnections1.JPG
ls XDHyp:HostingUnitshostingunits1.JPG

Remove items in the following order.

5. Remove the Resource(s) Path:

Remove-Item -Path "XDHyp:HostingUnitsResource Name"

In the example, this would be: Remove-Item -Path “XDHyp:HostingUnitsVMNW”

If there are multiple Resources, repeat the command for each resource name.

6. Remove Hosting Connection Path:

Remove-Item -Path "XDHyp:ConnectionsHosting Connection Name"

In the example, this would be: Remove-Item -Path “XDHyp:ConnectionsDublinPVS”

7. Removing Hosting connection Name:

Remove-BrokerHypervisorConnection -Name "Hosting Connection Name"

In the example, this would be: Remove-BrokerHypervisorConnection -Name “DublinPVS”

In some cases, the connection name might have already been removed. You could see an error on the final step stating that the connection could not be found.
