Deleting a Database Resource

Warning: Before deleting any resource, verify that jobs or services are not using the resource. Deleting a resource that is referenced by jobs or services causes those jobs or services to fail.

You must be a Spectrum Technology Platform administrator (admin) or Spatial administrator (spatial-admin) to perform this task. If you are a Spatial sub-administrator (spatial-sub-admin), then you must have permission to the folder that you are editing.

To delete a database from Spectrum:

  1. Open Management Console.
  2. Go to Resources > Spectrum Databases.
  3. Put a check mark next to the Spectrum database you want to delete.
  4. Click the Delete button .

Deleting a Spectrum database does not delete the actual data files. After deleting the resource, you must delete the data files from the Spectrum server if you want to free up space on your system. For instructions, see Deleting Data from Spectrum.
