Remove Server from Enterprise

Forcibly Removing a Server
If a Server is forcibly removed (in other words the subordinate is not online for some reason) the proper recovery if the remote system either:
Is brought back up and desires to remain independent of the enterprise (it has no knowledge that it left the enterprise
It is desired to restore the system to the enterprise
(Note: If the system will be offline permanently, no action is needed)
SCENARIO:
1. An enterprise is set up.
2. A subordinate server in the enterprise goes down.
3. At the Root Authority, it is determined that the best course of action is to remove the subordinate (e.g. because the server will be down for an extended time).
ACTIONS:
At the down servers POA, Remove the powered-down Server from the enterprise.
IF DESIRED FOR THAT SYSTEM TO RE-JOIN ENTERPRISE AT A LATER DATE:
At the Removed system, log into TTK, it will show the former enterprise tree (since the system has no knowledge it has been removed from the enterprise)
At the Removed system, log into the subordinate server's former POA (this is required for the next step).
At the Removed system, select the menu icon associated with the local Server (the removed subordinate server) and select Remove. Now the enterprise tree will correctly reflect that this system is not attached to an enterprise.
At the POA which this server will re-join, follow the "Add Former Server" process.
