Destroy a server from a pool


XenCenter 2023.x.x is currently in preview and is not supported for production use. Note that any future references to production support apply only when XenCenter 2023.x.x and XenServer 8 go from preview status to general availability.

You can use XenCenter 2023.x.x to manage your XenServer 8 and Citrix Hypervisor 8.2 CU1 non-production environments. However, to manage your Citrix Hypervisor 8.2 CU1 production environment, use XenCenter 8.2.7. For more information, see the XenCenter 8.2.7 documentation.

You can install XenCenter 8.2.7 and XenCenter 2023.x.x on the same system. Installing XenCenter 2023.x.x does not overwrite your XenCenter 8.2.7 installation.

Destroying a server from a resource pool forgets the specified XenServer server without contacting it explicitly. It permanently removes the server from the pool along with its local SRs, DVD drives, and removable storage. Use this option to destroy a server that cannot be contacted or has physically failed. Also, you cannot undo the destroy server operation. Reinstall the server before it can be used again.

  1. In the Resources pane, select the server and do one of the following:
    • Right-click and select Destroy in the Resources pane shortcut menu.
    • In the Server menu, select Destroy.
  2. Click Yes, Destroy to confirm.
