Remove a Managed VM from Operations CTRL

  • Dark

This is the process to remove a Managed VM from Operations CTRL without deleting the VM from the cloud it was deployed in.

Login to your Operations CTRL portal using OneLogin

Navigate to Infrastructure → Compute → Virtual Machines

Do Not use Provisioning → Instances menu to remove a VM from Operations CTRL! THIS WILL DELETE THE VM FROM THE CLOUD AND IS IRREVERSIBLE!

Click the checkbox to the left of VM's you wish to remove from Operations CTRL, then click "Actions" in the upper right hand corner and then click "Delete"

A confirmation window will pop up and provide you with three separate options

  • Remove Infrastructure
  • Remove Associated Instances
  • Force Delete

Ensure that NO boxes are checked, if Remove Infrastructure is selected it will remove that VM from the cloud it was provisioned which is irreversible

To remove the VM click the "DELETE" button

Once this process is complete the VM will be removed from Operations CTRL

NOTE: By default Expedient sets "Inventory Existing Instances" as enabled on the Cloud. This will cause the VM to be re-synced as discovered.
