Where instance is:

{ id=value | name=value }

Description

This command deletes an object.

Virtual machines and virtual machine templates are treated as equivalent within the CLI. Therefore, to delete a virtual machine template you should use the delete Vm command. Since it is possible that a virtual machine template and a virtual machine may share the same name, it is recommended that you use the object's unique ID to perform this operation.

Options

The following table shows the available options for this command.
