Deleting the NetScaler Gateway Virtual Image

Jul 09, 2013

If a virtual image is no longer required, you can use XenCenter or vSphere to delete the virtual image. Deleting a virtual image is the same as disconnecting the physical appliance from your network and removing it from the rack.

Note: When you delete the virtual appliance from XenCenter, if you do not delete the attached virtual disks, the virtual disks consume disk space in the XenServer resource pool.

To delete the virtual image in XenCenter

  1. Start XenCenter on your computer.
  2. In the navigation pane, right-click a NetScaler Gateway virtual image and then click Shut Down.
  3. WhenNetScaler Gateway is shut down, right-click the virtual image and then click Delete.
  4. Select Delete attached virtual disks and then click OK.

To delete the virtual image in vSphere

  1. Open the VMware vSphere Client.
  2. In the navigation pane, right-click the NetScaler Gateway virtual image, click Power and then click Power Off.
  3. When NetScaler Gateway is shut down, right-click the virtual image and then click Delete from Disk.

To delete the virtual image in Microsoft Hyper-V

To delete the virtual image from Microsoft Hyper-V, you use the Hyper-V Manager. You can use the following guidelines:

  • Remove all snapshots from the virtual image.
  • Shut down the virtual image.
  1. Remove all snapshots from the virtual image.
  2. Shut down the virtual image.
  3. Right-click the virtual image and click Delete.
  4. Click Delete again.

This procedure removes the virtual image, but does not remove the virtual image files. To remove all the files, browse to the location where the virtual image is stored and delete the parent folder.
