Describes how to delete a Server that has failed either in the deployment or deletion processes.
Failed Deletions Should be Cleaned Immediately
If a server fails to delete as described in How to Delete a Cloud Server, this "clean" process should be run immediately as usage will continue to be incurred until the server is successfully removed. Please open a support case if the steps described in this article are unsuccessful.
- The Server must be in a failed state (FAILED_ADD or FAILED_DELETE)
- If a Server fails while being migrated from a Snapshot Preview Server to a Normal Server, you cannot remove the failed deployment. You must open a support ticket to have the server removed.
