ONTAP Select Single node cluster Deploy VM mandatory after cluster create

Hi all,

 

After a single node cluster deployment, is Deploy VM can be deleted ?

Or Licence check is done by Deploy VM at every reboot of ONTAP Select VM ?

 

Thanks,

 

François

There is no dependency on Deploy for any cluster configuratoin EXCEPT a 2-node cluster - where it is used as the mediator (witness).    

 

That being said, it is useful for starting/stopping the cluster, status monitoring, and troubleshooting.  I'd recommend not deleting it - just shut it down.

 

But if you MUST delete the Deploy VM I'd suggest you take a backup and download the package before you remove it.

 

From the CLI:

 

     deploy backup create -name {backup_name} -foreground

     deploy backup show -detailed

     (Copy Download URL into browser and save the file)

 

Then if for some reason you needed the Deploy Utility, you could restore the database using the CLI.
