Remove an enclosure from HPE OneView

Typically, you remove an enclosure from HPE OneView when you retire the enclosure, perhaps if you are transferring it to another organization. Removing the enclosure prevents unnecessary alerts and ensures that the enclosure is unavailable for profile deployment. The enclosure might be added for management under another management appliance.

Removing an enclosure from HPE OneView removes the enclosure and all of its interconnects, servers, alerts, activities, and associations with other objects from the management appliance. You must remove the server profiles from the servers in the enclosure to complete the remove operation. If the enclosure is hosting active server profiles, you cannot perform the remove operation.
