Deleting a DomainLocate this document in the navigation structure

Remove a domain and its contents from the cluster when you no longer require the partition.


When a domain is deleted, all referenced artifacts, such as domain administrators and security configurations, are retained. However, all contained artifacts, including packages, subscription templates, device subscriptions, MBO and operation historical data, package-level role mapping, cache group settings, server connections, and domain-level role mappings for security configurations independent of any other domain, are also deleted.

To preserve a deployed package before deleting a domain, export the package to an archive file.
Note You cannot delete the "default" domain since it contains critical runtime-related artifacts.


  1. In the left navigation pane, select Domains.
  2. In the right administration pane, click the General tab and select the domain you want to delete.
  3. Click Delete.
  4. In the confirmation dialog, click Yes.
