Managing Clusters
Also available as:

Force terminate a cluster

The force terminate option can be used when cluster deletion fails.

Cluster deletion may fail if Cloudbreak is unable to delete one or more of the cloud resources that were part of your cluster infrastructure. Use the Terminate > Force terminate option to remove the cluster entry from the Cloudbreak web UI. If you use this option, you must also check your cloud provider account to see if there are any resources that must be deleted manually.


  1. Browse to the cluster details.
  2. Click Terminate.
  3. Check Force terminate.
  4. Click Yes to confirm.

    When terminating a cluster with Kerberos enabled, you have an option to disable Kerberos prior to cluster termination. This option removes any cluster-related principals from the KDC.

  5. This deletes the cluster tile from the UI.
  6. Log in to your cloud provider account and manually delete any resources that failed to be deleted.
