Removing a cluster from AWS

You can remove a cluster that you installed on Amazon Web Services (AWS).

  • Have a copy of the installation program that you used to deploy the cluster.

  • Have the files that the installation program generated when you created your cluster.

  1. From the computer that you used to install the cluster, run the following command:

    $ ./openshift-install destroy cluster \
    --dir=<installation_directory> --log-level=info (1) (2)
    1 For <installation_directory>, specify the path to the directory that you stored the installation files in.
    2 To view different details, specify warn, debug, or error instead of info.

    You must specify the directory that contains the cluster definition files for your cluster. The installation program requires the metadata.json file in this directory to delete the cluster.

  2. Optional: Delete the <installation_directory> directory and the OpenShift Container Platform installation program.
