- On the top bar, select Main menu > Admin.
- On the left sidebar, select Geo > Nodes.
- Select the Remove button for the secondary site you want to remove.
- Confirm by selecting Remove when the prompt appears.

sudo gitlab-ctl stop
# Stop gitlab and remove its supervision process sudo gitlab-ctl uninstall # Debian/Ubuntu sudo dpkg --remove gitlab-ee # Redhat/Centos sudo rpm --erase gitlab-ee
Once GitLab has been uninstalled from each node on the secondary site, the replication slot must be dropped from the primary site’s database as follows:

SELECT * FROM pg_replication_slots;
