I cannot change the SCVMM server used for lab management in TFS.

When I try to change the SCVMM server in "Application Tier > Lab Management" in the TFS Server Administration Console, I get the following error:
"TF255231: The following name of the server [...] cannot be changed because resources are associated with it [...]. Delete the host groups and library shares for each team project collection. Then try the operation again."

So to change the SCVMM server, I have to remove it from my project collections first. However, when I try to remove them from my project collection, I get other errors:

"TF254066: You must add at least one host group to the team project collection while configuring Lab Management".

"TF254067: You must add at least one library share to the team project collection while configuring Lab Management".

This means I currently cannot change my lab management settings by using the TFS Administration Console.
