cDOT vserver delete

hello community,


i would like to know, how i can delete a vserver. 


if i try to unmount the root volumen, i get this message : Error: command failed: Invalid operation. Reason: Cannot unmount Vserver namespace root volume "vsm_cifs_root".


can somebody give me an advice?






Re: cDOT vserver delete

first , offline all volumes associated with that vserver


eg:         cluster::> vol offline -vserver testsvm -volume testroot


Then destroy those volumes


eg:         cluster::>  vol destroy -vserver testsvm -volume testroot


Now you can delete the SVM.


eg:      cluster::> vserver delete -vserver testsvm
