Releasing nodes from the NFS cluster


  • When the last node in the NFS cluster is removed, the cluster is destroyed and all of the data is deleted.


To release a node from the NFS cluster

Admin panel

  1. Go to the Storage services > NFS > Nodes screen.
  2. Click a node to release, and then click Release on the right pane.
  3. If a node has shares, it can only be released after deleting all of them. To release such a node, select Delete all shares on this node, and then click Release in the confirmation window.

Command-line interface

    # vinfra service nfs node release --nodes <node>

    # vinfra service nfs cluster delete
