This topic describes how to enable deletion protection for pay-as-you-go Classic Load Balancer (CLB) instances. Deletion protection prevents CLB instances from being mistakenly deleted.


  1. Log on to the CLB console.
  2. On the Instances page, find the CLB instance and click its ID or choose More > Manage in the Actions column.
  3. Click the Instance Details tab and turn on Deletion Protection.
    Note You must disable Deletion Protection before you can delete the CLB instance. Otherwise, the system reports an error.
