Deleting a storage virtual machine (SVM) - FSx for ONTAP
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China (PDF).

Deleting a storage virtual machine (SVM)

You can only delete an FSx for ONTAP SVM by using the Amazon FSx console, the Amazon CLI, and API. Before you can delete an SVM, you must delete all non-root volumes attached to the SVM first.

Important

You cannot delete an SVM by using the NetApp ONTAP CLI or API.

Note

Before you delete a storage virtual machine, make sure that no applications are accessing the data in the SVM, and that you have deleted all non-root volumes attached to the SVM.

To delete a storage virtual machine (console)
  1. Open the Amazon FSx console at https://console.amazonaws.cn/fsx/.

  2. Choose the SVM that you want to delete as follows:

    • In the left navigation pane, choose File systems, and then choose the ONTAP file system for which you want to delete an SVM.

    • Choose the Storage virtual machines tab.

      –Or–

    • To display a list of all the SVMs available, expand ONTAP and choose Storage virtual machines.

    Select the SVM that you want to delete from the list.

  3. In the Volumes tab, view the list of volumes attached to the SVM. If there are any non-root volumes attached to the SVM, you must delete them before you can delete the SVM. See Deleting a volume for more information.

  4. Choose Delete storage virtual machine from the Actions menu.

  5. In the delete confirmation dialog box, choose Delete storage virtual machine.

To delete a storage virtual machine (CLI)
  • To delete an FSx for ONTAP storage virtual machine, use the delete-storage-virtual-machine CLI command (or the equivalent DeleteStorageVirtualMachine API operation), as shown in the following example.

    aws fsx delete-storage-virtual-machine --storage-virtual-machine-id svm-abcdef0123456789d
