How should I decommision a GTS Online server? Follow

When you are decommissioning a VM, either because it has been replaced with a new server or the customer is no longer with GTS, please make sure to follow the following steps:

  1. Update the Notes on the VM to include when it has been decommissioned and who decommissioned it. Why would be helpful as well.
  2. Migrate the VM to any of the TEST or UTIL LUNs to get it off of production storage.
  3. Move the VM to the Retired VM folder in vSphere
  4. Convert the VM to a template

This way, the status of the vm is known, and it can be exported to the Data Domain for archival or deleted.
