Delete host or host cluster

You can delete a host or host cluster.

About this task

Keep these guidelines in mind when you delete a host or a host cluster:
  • Any specific volume assignments are deleted, and the associated volumes are available for a new assignment.

  • If the host is part of a host cluster that has its own specific assignments, the host cluster is unaffected. However, if the host is part of a host cluster that does not have any other assignments, the host cluster and any other associated hosts or host port identifiers inherit any default assignments.

  • Any host port identifiers that were associated with the host become undefined.

  1. Select Storage > Hosts .
