Deleting a Cloud Volumes ONTAP working environment
Contributors Download PDF of this page
It is best to delete Cloud Volumes ONTAP systems from Cloud Manager, rather than from your cloud provider’s console. For example, if you terminate a licensed Cloud Volumes ONTAP instance from AWS, then you can’t use the license key for another instance. You must delete the working environment from Cloud Manager to release the license.
When you delete a working environment, Cloud Manager terminates instances, deletes disks, and snapshots.
|Cloud Volumes ONTAP instances have termination protection enabled to help prevent accidental termination from AWS. However, if you do terminate a Cloud Volumes ONTAP instance from AWS, you must go to the AWS CloudFormation console and delete the instance’s stack. The stack name is the name of the working environment.|
From the working environment, click menu icon and then click Delete.
Type the name of the working environment and then click Delete.
It can take up to 5 minutes to delete the working environment.
