Remove a Managed VM from Operations CTRL
- Updated on 03 Feb 2022
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.
