Remove a Cloud Storage Pool

Contributors netapp-madkat

You can remove a Cloud Storage Pool that is not used in an ILM rule and that does not contain object data.

What you’ll need
  • You are signed in to the Grid Manager using a supported web browser.

  • You have specific access permissions.

  • You have confirmed that the S3 bucket or Azure container does not contain any objects. An error occurs if you attempt to remove a Cloud Storage Pool if it contains objects. See Troubleshoot Cloud Storage Pools.

    Note When you create a Cloud Storage Pool, StorageGRID writes a marker file to the bucket or container to identify it as a Cloud Storage Pool. Do not remove this file, which is named x-ntap-sgws-cloud-pool-uuid.
  • You have already removed any ILM rules that might have used the pool.

  1. Select ILM > Storage pools.

    The Storage Pools page appears.

  2. Select the radio button for a Cloud Storage Pool that is not currently used in an ILM rule.

    You cannot remove a Cloud Storage Pool if it is used in an ILM rule. The Remove button is disabled.
