If for some reason you must redeploy the NSX Application Platform or free up the cluster that it uses, you must first delete any existing platform deployment you already have.

When you delete the NSX Application Platform, the platform gets deleted permanently.

Prerequisites

  • You must have Enterprise Admin privileges.

  • Delete all the NSX features that you activated on the NSX Application Platform.

Procedure

  1. From your browser, log in with Enterprise Admin privileges to an NSX Manager at https://<nsx-manager-ip-address>.
  2. Navigate to System > NSX Application Platform > .
  3. Click Actions in the bottom-left corner of the NSX Application Platform section and select Delete from the pop-up menu.
  4. Click Yes, Delete to confirm.

    The deletion process can take a while as the system deletes all the Kubernetes resources it created in your TKC or upstream Kubernetes cluster when you deployed the NSX Application Platform.

Results

If the deletion is successful, a message banner with NSX Application Platform deleted successfully! appears on the UI.
