Decommissioning a NAS Bridge node

When you no longer need a NAS Bridge node, you should decommission the node. The decommissioning process first flushes all of the file systems; the data in the cache is written to the permanent object store. After this, all of the file systems are unmounted and the virtual machine is shut down.
