CB Admin can remove an environment any time without damaging or disrupting the existing servers, which locate in the environment. This could be done by associating the servers with an unassigned environment.
CB error while attempting to remove an environment with active servers looks like this:
Error: Specific error - Environment "US East (Northern Virginia) [us-east-1] ENV-A-1" cannot be deleted, because it has 19 active servers. They need to be decommissioned or moved to a different environment first.
Steps to be taken:
- Click on CB Admin -> Environment
- Select the Environment, which you want to remove and has active servers.
- Click on server Tab
- Select all servers
- Click on pencil (Change Owner, Group and Environment)
- In Environment selection select unassigned
Now you can delete your Environment safely.
