Deleting a virtual machine by using the CLI

You can delete a virtual machine by using the oc command line interface (CLI). The oc client enables you to perform actions on multiple virtual machines.

  • Identify the name of the virtual machine that you want to delete.

  • Delete the virtual machine by running the following command:

    $ oc delete vm <vm_name>

    This command only deletes a VM in the current project. Specify the -n <project_name> option if the VM you want to delete is in a different project or namespace.
