-r REGION, --region REGION

Specifies the AWS Region to use. If this is specified, the configuration skips AWS Region detection.

To delete the network resources in the VPC, you can delete the CloudFormation networking stack. The stack name starts with "parallelclusternetworking-" and contains the creation time in "YYYYMMDDHHMMSS" format. You can list the stacks using the list-stacks command.

$ aws --region us-east-1 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-east-1 cloudformation delete-stack \ --stack-name parallelclusternetworking-pubpriv-20191029205804

The VPC that pcluster configure creates for you is not created in the CloudFormation networking stack. You can delete that VPC manually in the console or by using the AWS CLI.

$ aws --region us-east-1 ec2 delete-vpc --vpc-id vpc-0b4ad9c4678d3c7ad
