To use the delete_component command, you must specify the component name and type, as well as the system if you are deleting a node. You do not need to specify the component name for disk_file_system types.

You can delete a system, node, media server, NetBackup server, disk file system, or a target group, except under the following conditions:
  • system marked for repository backup
  • system in use by a job
  • media server in use by a target group
  • NetBackup server in use by a target group
  • target group in use by a job
  • target group in use by a target group map
  • target group in use for repository backups
  • policy used by a target group
