This topic describes how to enable deletion protection for pay-as-you-go SLB instances to prevent instances from being deleted by incorrect operations.


  1. Log on to the Server Load Balancer console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Instances > Instances.
  3. Find the instance for which you want to enable deletion protection, click its instance ID or choose More > Manage in the corresponding Actions column.
  4. On the page that appears, click the Instance Details tab, and then turn on Deletion Protection.
    Note To delete an instance, you must disable Deletion Protection. Otherwise, the system reports an error.
