-r REGION, --region REGION

If pcluster configure created a new VPC, you can delete that VPC by deleting the AWS CloudFormation stack it created. The name will start with "parallelclusternetworking-" and contain the creation time in a "YYYYMMDDHHMMSS" format. You can list the stacks using the list-stacks command.

$ aws --region us-east-2 cloudformation list-stacks \ --stack-status-filter "CREATE_COMPLETE" \ --query "StackSummaries[].StackName" | \ grep -e "parallelclusternetworking-" "parallelclusternetworking-pubpriv-20191029205804"

The stack can be deleted using the delete-stack command.

$ aws --region us-west-2 cloudformation delete-stack \ --stack-name parallelclusternetworking-pubpriv-20191029205804
