The Unextend Resource Hierarchy option removes a complete hierarchy, including all of its resources, from a single server. This is different than the Delete Resource Hierarchy selection which removes a hierarchy from all servers.
When using Unextend Resource Hierarchy, the server from which the existing hierarchy is to be removed is referred to as the target server.
The Unextend Resource Hierarchy selection can be used from any SIOS Protection Suite server that has active SIOS Protection Suite communication paths to the target server.
- Select a server-specific resource instance from the hierarchy that you want to unextend, and then select Unextend Resource Hierarchy from the resource context menu or resource context toolbar.
- The dialog will display a message verifying the server and resource hierarchy that you have specified to be unextended. Click Unextend to perform the action.
- If the output panel is enabled, the dialog closes, and the results of the commands to unextend the resource hierarchy are shown in the output panel. If not, the dialog remains up to show these results, and you click Done to finish when all results have been displayed.
