The following figure highlights the main steps executed with the system destroy workflow.

This image depicts an overview of the system destroy workflow. It contains the steps Stop System, Unprepare system, Delete Storage Clone, and Delete System Configuration.

  1. To decommission a cloned system, it must be stopped and prepared in advance. Afterwards the system destroy workflow can be started.

    This graphic contains a architectural diagram combined with where the previously mentioned workflow steps occur withing the system.

  2. In this example, we run the system destroy workflow for the system created before. We select the system in the System View screen and start the system destroy workflow under Destroy Processes.

  3. All the mount points maintained during the provisioning phase are shown here and are deleted during the system destroy workflow process.

    This screenshot shows the Destroy System screen under the Destroy Storage Volumes tab with all mount points listed.

    No virtual hostnames are deleted because they are maintained through DNS and have been assigned automatically.
