7.5 Deleting Templates

Deleted templates cannot be recovered. You also cannot delete a template that has clones. However, you can use the Development Client to detach the clones from the template. For more information, see Section 8.2, Detaching Clones from Templates.

  1. In the VM Client, click the Templates view, then select one or more templates.

  2. Do one of the following to delete the selected templates:

    • Click the Delete button button.

    • Click Edit > Delete.

    • In the Templates view, right-click the selected template, then select Delete.

  3. Click either Yes or No to delete the template:

    Delete Confirmation Dialog Box

    This completely removes the templates from the Templates view. It does not have any affect on any VMs cloned from these templates.
