Remove a data center from the appliance

You might want to remove a data center from the appliance for these reasons:

  • Removing the default datacenter (Datacenter 1).

  • Changing the representation of your data center

  • Combining several data centers into a single data center

  • Performing cleanup after ownership of the data center has changed


Removing a data center does not remove any of the resources that have been positioned in it. All racks become available for positioning in other data centers.
