I have been asked a couple times this week about how would you remove AFS from a cluster. To be honest it is really easy.
To delete a file server:
Caution: Deleting a File Server VM (FSVM) can result in data loss. Be sure that you archive or back up data stored on a FSVM before you delete.
- Remove the file server from the domain
- In the Prism web console, go to File Server view and select the
- Click Leave Domain and select Leave Domain in the pop-up window
- Select the file server from the file server list and click Delete
That is all there is to is. Waiting for everything to complete and AFS will have been removed.
