Deleted templates are permanently removed from the system.

Before you begin

You must be connected to vCenter Server to delete a template. You cannot work with templates if you connect the vSphere Client directly to an ESXi host.

Procedure

  1. Right-click the template, and select Delete from Disk.
  2. Click OK to confirm removing the template from the datastore.

    The template is deleted from the disk and cannot be recovered.
