Virtual Private Cloud:DeleteVSwitch

Last Updated:Feb 27, 2024

Deletes a vSwitch.

Operation description

When you call this operation, take note of the following limits:

  • Before you delete a vSwitch, you must first release or remove all virtual private cloud (VPC) resources, including vSwitches, instances, router interfaces, and high-availability virtual IP addresses (HAVIPs).

  • You can delete only vSwitches that are in the Available state.

  • You cannot delete a vSwitch from a VPC where a vSwitch or a route is being created or deleted.

  • DeleteVSwitch is an asynchronous operation. After a request is sent, the system returns a request ID and runs the task in the background. You can call the DescribeVSwitchAttributes operation to query the status of the task:

    • If the vSwitch is in the Pending state, the vSwitch is being deleted.
    • If you cannot query the vSwitch, the vSwitch is deleted.
  • You cannot repeatedly call the DeleteVSwitch operation to delete a vSwitch within the specified period of time.
