Remove a DataPower appliance

We can use the console to remove an appliance from the DataPower appliance manager.

If we no longer want the DataPower appliance manager to manage one of you appliances...to remove that appliance from the DataPower appliance manager.

Avoid trouble: Do not remove a DataPower appliance from a managed set if it is the only appliance in that managed set, until you have added the replacement appliance to that managed set. Removing the last appliance from a managed set causes the managed set to be deleted, and all of the versions of the shareable settings and domains to be removed from the DataPower appliance manager. There is not any way for you to recover these removed versions.gotcha
