cDOT vserver delete

jakob_bena

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?

 

regards

jakob

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
