To remove a datacenter location from a user menu, a system administrator must remove the location information from the locations file and a fabric administrator must remove location information from the compute resource.

For example, if you add London to the locations file, associate ten compute resources with that location, and then remove London from the file, the compute resources are still associated with the location London and London is still included in the location drop-down list on the Confirm Machine Request page. To remove the location from the drop-down list, a fabric administrator must edit the compute resource and reset the Location to blank for all compute resources that are associated with the location.

The following is a high-level overview of the sequence of steps required to remove a datacenter location:

  1. A system administrator removes the datacenter location information from the locations file.

  2. A fabric administrator removes all the compute resource associations to the location by editing the locations of each associated compute resource.
