  • You need the 'security_manager' user role privilege in your RightScale account.


When you delete a network, you are removing the ability for instances to interact with the network and network resources. You cannot remove a network if you have instances that are associated to the network (whether the instances are operational or not). 


  1. Go to Manage > Networks and locate the network or networks you would like to remove.
  2. From the Actions drop-down, select Delete.



  1. A confimation will appear asking if you are sure you will want to remove the selected network or networks.
  2. Click Delete.

Note: You can only remove a network if it does not have any instances associated to it. You will need to modify the Subnets and Security Groups used by an instance before this can be removed. If the instances is operational, you will need to terminate it before you can modify the instance. Additionally, will will need to remove the Subnets (Delete a Subnet) and Security Groups (Delete Security Groups) that were created in the network before the network can be deleted.
