The question title really says it all -- the documentation describes how to remove network cards (i.e. pulling the network adapter out of the VM), but not removing a VM from an existing network.

You may not be able to remove VMs from a network, but you can certainly switch which network they are associated with. (One way you could remove a VM from the network, is, well, remove the network card ;))

Steps are given under vSphere ESXi 4.1

  1. Create a new network under Configuration -> Network. You can keep all the default settings, but give it a good name.
  2. Go into the VM settings.
  3. Select the network adapter.
  4. Switch networks under Network Label (this is the name you gave your new network).
