Deregistering a resource provider instance
If you want to remove a resource provider from the cloud, you can deregister that provider instance.
For example, if you decide to increase the capacity of your BMC Server Automation console server by moving it to a larger physical server, you might need to deregister the current instance.
You cannot deregister a provider if any objects or resources from that provider exist.
Before you begin
Before you can deregister a resource provider instance, you must first offboard all of the resources from that provider instance, as described in Onboarding and offboarding compute resources.
To deregister a resource provider instance
- From the BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management Administration Console, click the vertical Workspaces menu on the left side of the window and select Providers.
The list of registered resource provider instances is displayed.
- Under Quick Links and Category on the left, click a provider category: Compute, Network, Storage, or PaaS.
The list of registered providers for the selected category is displayed.
- Select the resource provider instance that you want to remove, and click the Deregister icon .
When the confirmation dialog box is displayed, click Yes.
After you deregister a provider instance, you can no longer onboard or use resources from that instance.
