Deleting resource groups

You can delete a resource group if you no longer need to protect the resources in the resource group. You must ensure that resource groups are deleted before you remove plug-ins from SnapCenter.

Before you begin

If you are managing SQL or Windows file system resources, you must have manually deleted all clones created for any of the resources in the resource group.

About this task

You can optionally force the deletion of all backups, metadata, policies, and Snapshot copies associated with the resource group.

Note: In a SnapVault relationship, the last Snapshot copy cannot be deleted; therefore, the resource group cannot be deleted. Before deleting a resource group that is part of a SnapVault relationship, you must remove the SnapVault relationship and then delete the last Snapshot copy.

Steps

  1. In the left navigation pane, click Resources, and then select the appropriate plug-in from the list.
  2. In the Resources page, select Resource Group from the View list.
  3. Select the resource group, and then click Delete.
  4. Optional: Select the Delete backups and detach policies associated with this Resource Group check box to remove all backups, metadata, policies, and Snapshot copies associated with the resource group.
  5. Click OK.
