Let’s say we deployed a new File server and want to use the power of analytics, a tool created to provide data and statistics on the operations and contents of a file server.
Once File Analytics is deployed on AOS cluster. We can Launch the File Analytics GUI from prism to subscribe to a File Server. Data on the Analytics VM is protected and is kept in a separate volume group other than Files volume group.
But what if we made a mistake while deploying or we want to roll back?
How can we delete the File Analytic VM?
Before answering the question, we need to be absolutely sure if we really want to delete the analytic VM as it will delete all the data and configuration related to the Analytics.
So taking the above note as a serious disclaimer, if we wish to go-ahead
Do we have a way to remove the Analytics VM?
Just follow the documentation mentioned below
