Delete a Template on XenServer

Posted on November 4, 2016 at 11:09 pm

To delete a template on XenServer you can type:

xe template-uninstall template-uuid=ENTER_TEMPLATE_UUID_HERE force=true

If it cannot be deleted due to these errors:

The operation attempted is not valid for a template VM
You cannot delete the specified default template

Make sure to remove the “default_template” parameter:

xe template-param-remove uuid=ENTER_TEMPLATE_UUID_HERE param-name=other-config param-key=default_template

Then retry to delete the template, it should work:

[root@rs2 ~]# xe template-param-remove uuid=1233c123-3216-g5eb1-152a-123fa1239612 param-name=other-config param-key=default_template
[root@rs2 ~]# xe template-uninstall template-uuid=1233c123-3216-g5eb1-152a-123fa1239612 force=true
The following items are about to be destroyed

All objects destroyed
