Subject Re: Simplest way to delete cluster via API?
Date Tue, 03 Sep 2013 23:04:09 GMT
Hi Sumit,

I'm using 1.2.4...  I noticed that if I wait for all services to become
'INSTALLED' then I can delete the cluster.

Do you know if there's a way to avoid this step and forcibly delete the
cluster?  Or do I need to update?
