Deleting Custom Tape Pools

You can delete a custom tape pool only if there are no archived tapes in the pool, and there are no automatic tape creation policies attached to the pool.

To delete your custom tape pool
  1. Open the Storage Gateway console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/storagegateway/home.

  2. In the navigation pane, choose Pools to see the available pools.

  3. Select one or more tape pools to delete.

    If the Tape Count for the tape pools that you want to delete is 0, and if there are no automatic tape creation policies that reference the custom tape pool, you can delete the pools.

  4. Choose Delete. The confirmation dialog box appears.

  5. Verify that you want to delete the specified tape pools, then type the word delete in the confirmation box and choose Delete.

    Warning

    This procedure permanently deletes the selected tape pools and can't be undone.

    After the tape pools are deleted, they disappear from the tape library.
