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.
- Log on to the CLB console.
- On the Instances page, find the CLB instance and click its ID or choose in the Actions column.
- 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.
