tadm delete-failover-group common_options --config=config_name [--force] --virtual-ip=VIP


Use this command to delete a failover group. To change the VIP or any property of a failover group, you should delete the failover group and create it afresh.

When deleting a failover group, if the administration node process is running as non-root on the node where the instances are located and if at least one failover group is still available, then you must run start-failover on those nodes as a root user. This is to manually restart the failover. On the other hand, after deleting a failover group, if no other failover groups are available for the corresponding instances, then stop-failover must be executed to stop the failover. If you do not execute either start-failover or stop-failover, then the VIP associated with the deleted failover group will continue to be available.


For information about common_options, run the help command.


Specify the configuration for which you want to delete a failover group.


Specify the virtual IP address of the failover group that you want to delete.


Specify this option to delete the failover group even if the nodes are offline.
