How to delete unused virtual machine on Hyper-v 2012 R2

    Question

  • I create a new virtual machine and connected with one of existing virtual switch.

    Virtual machine which was before connected to this virtual switch is still visible in HvConect.

    Is there any way to remove it from list in HvConect.

    Thanks

  • What is HVConect? Do you me the Hyper-V Management console? If so, you simply right click on the virtual machine you want to delete and select Delete. This deletes the entry from the console but it does not delete the files associated with the virtual machine. Those you must delete separately.

    Do you mean you don't need the old VM and want to delete?

    If yes, you could delete it as Tim described.

    Or, do you mean you want the old VM to not connect to the virtual switch?

    If yes, open the settings of the VM>Network Adapter>Virtual Switch, choose not connected.

    Best Regards,
