Deleting a Net

You can delete an empty Net that you no longer need. With Cockpit, you can choose to delete the Net only, or to delete it and all its associated resources at the same time.

Deleting a Net Using Cockpit v2

Deleting a Net Only

Before you begin: Delete or unlink all resources associated with the Net:

  1. Unlink public IPs from resources in the Net. For more information, see Unlinking a Public IP from a VM or a Network Interface.

  2. Delete virtual machines (VMs) in the Net. For more information, see Terminating VMs.

    This action automatically deletes BSU volumes with the DeleteOnVmDeletion attribute set to true that are attached to the virtual machines.

    To prevent data loss, you can:
    - Create backups of the volumes using snapshots. For more information, see Creating a Snapshot of a Volume.
    - Set the DeleteOnVmDeletion attribute to false for each volume to prevent its deletion. For more information, see Modifying a VM Attribute.

  3. Delete:

    1. Net peerings. For more information, see Deleting a Net Peering.

    2. Custom route tables. For more information, see Deleting a Route Table.

    3. Internet services, virtual gateways, and NAT services. For more information, see Deleting an Internet Service, Deleting a Virtual Gateway, and Deleting a NAT Service.

    4. Load balancers and Net access points. For more information, see Deleting a Load Balancer and Deleting a Net Access Point.

    5. Security groups. For more information, see Deleting a Security Group.

    6. Network interface cards (NICs) created in the Subnets. For more information, see Deleting a NIC.

    7. Subnets in the Net. For more information, see Deleting a Subnet.

  1. Click inside the Nets dashboard to make checkboxes appear.

  2. Check the box of the Net you want to delete.
    The Net is selected and an action menu appears.

    You can delete multiple Nets by selecting several at a time.

  3. Click IconTerminate Delete.
    A confirmation dialog box appears.

  4. Click Delete Net.
    The DHCP options set associated with the Net is disassociated and the Net is deleted.

      To prevent data loss, you can:
      - Create backups of the volumes using snapshots. For more information, see Creating a Snapshot of a Volume.
      - Set the DeleteOnVmDeletion attribute to false for each volume to prevent its deletion. For more information, see Modifying a VM Attribute.

    • Internet services, virtual gateways, and NAT services

    • Custom route tables and their routes

    • Network interface cards (NICs)

    • Load balancers

    • Security groups

    6. Flexible network interfaces (FNIs) created in the subnets. For more information, see Deleting a NIC.

    7. Subnets in the VPC. For more information, see Deleting a Subnet.

To delete a VPC, use the delete-vpc command following this syntax:

Request sample
$ aws ec2 delete-vpc \
    --profile YOUR_PROFILE \
