When you disable a resource pool, the memory and compute resources of the resource pool are no longer available to the provider virtual data center.

Processes that are already in progress do not stop using resources from the disabled resource pool.

Note: You cannot disable the primary resource pool on a provider virtual data center.


  1. From the main menu (Menu), select Cloud Resources.
  2. In the left panel, click Provider VDCs, and click the name of the target provider virtual data center.
  3. Click the Resource Pools tab.
  4. Click the radio button next to the target resource pool, and click Enable or Disable.
  5. To confirm, click OK.
