Subject RE: Regarding deletion of virtual machine
Date Tue, 05 Feb 2013 04:21:12 GMT

destroyVirtualMachine  API/UI option is to destroy the instance .  This is one of the VM state
before deleting permanently from cloudstack.   In destroy state, User will get option to restore
the VM.

Next state of destroy is expunging  .By default expunge interval set in Cloudstack is 86400
sec.  So change the global config "expunge.interval" to minimum value to get it expunged immediately.
 Expunged is permanent delete from Cloudstack.

What is the state of the instance ?  Delete option won't be available if the instance is in
intermittent state [starting/stopping] .
