Removing gateway software from a hardware appliance

To remove gateway software from your hardware appliance, use the following procedure.

To remove a gateway from a hardware appliance
  1. On the Hardware page of the Storage Gateway console, choose the hardware appliance you want to delete.

  2. For Actions, choose Remove Gateway. The confirmation dialog box appears.

  3. Verify that you want to remove the gateway software from specified hardware appliance, then type the word remove in the confirmation box and choose Remove.

    Note

    After you remove the gateway software, you can't undo the action. For certain gateway types, you can lose data on deletion, particularly cached data. For more information on deleting a gateway, see Deleting Your Gateway by Using the Amazon Storage Gateway Console and Removing Associated Resources.

Removing the gateway doesn't delete the hardware appliance from the console. The hardware appliance remains for future gateway deployments.
