ONTAP 9.14.1 commands

vserver delete

Delete an existing Vserver

Availability: This command is available to cluster administrators at the admin privilege level.


The vserver delete command deletes a specified Vserver. If the Vserver is associated with one or more volumes, you must manually delete volumes (including root and mirror volumes) before you delete the Vserver. If the Vserver subtype is dp-destination , change the Vserver subtype to default by specifying the Vserver as the destination in the snapmirror break command before deleting the objects owned by the Vserver.


-vserver <vserver> - Vserver

This specifies the Vserver that is to be deleted.

[-foreground {true|false}] - Foreground Process

This optionally specifies the Vserver delete operation can be executed in the background. If nothing is specified, by default the Vserver delete operation is executed in the foreground.


The following example deletes a Vserver named vs2.example.com :

cluster1::> vserver delete -vserver vs2.example.com
